13 Reserves Reserves are a safety net that allow a district to meet its fiscal obligations. Reserves allow a district to have cash on hand to meet its obligations even when hit with unexpected financial turbulence Most financial problems are really multiyear problems and not one-time. Reserves are one-time funds – once used, they are not replaced except by purposeful action of the district Reserves can carry a district through a year of financial problems until budget cuts are implemented to solve the problem

14 Reserves Significant reserves are needed to solve ongoing budget problems, even temporarily, if no other actions are taken to right-size the budget. Goal is to have the resources necessary to meet both planned and unplanned financial challenges, while spending as much of the current year’s resources as possible on the current year’s programs and students
