2 Available Funds Angela Dawson 2

4 4 See District Budget p. 63 Fund balance reflects the net financial resources of a fund – in other words, assets minus liabilities – in simpler terms, dollars available to spend. If some of the funds’ resources are not available to spend, this would be indicated by “restricting” or “reserving” a portion of fund balance. WHAT IS FUND BALANCE?

5 General Fund Balance – 5 years 5

6 GFB – 5 year trend 6

7 Classifications of Fund Balance 7 Nonspendable – The net current financial resources that cannot be spent because they are either not in spendable form or are legally or contractually required to be maintained intact. Generally, not in spendable form means that an item is not expected to be converted to cash – examples include inventory, prepaid amounts, long-term amounts of loans and notes receivable, and property acquired for resale. Restricted – The portion of fund balance on which constraints have been placed by creditors, grantors, contributors, laws or regulations of other governments, constitutional provisions, or enabling legislation. Committed – The portion of fund balance that can only be used for specific purposes pursuant to constraints imposed by formal action of the highest level of decision-making authority – the district school board. These amounts cannot be used for any other purpose unless the district school board removes or changes the specified use by taking the same action it employed to previously commit the amounts. *Assigned – The portion of fund balance that is intended to be used for specific purposes, but is neither restricted or committed. *Unassigned – The portion of fund balance that represents amounts that are not nonspendable, restricted, committed or assigned to specific purposes. *represents the Unreserved funds.

10 Salary Comparisons 10

11 Teacher Average Salary Compared 11

12 Why Does the Average Salary Decline? The Lapse Factor – Loss of experienced employees replaced with entry level employees – The gap in wages and benefits between the two employees is the Lapse – Benefits that are a percent of wages, FRS, UEC, and Worker’s Compensation also add to the Lapse – The amount of time that a position remains unfilled adds to the Lapse factor savings. 12

21 Comparison of Benefits Schedule

22 Comparison of Premiums

23 Adverse selection occurs as the cost of a benefit increases for everyone in a group and some portion of that group has an advantage that allows access to the benefit at a cheaper cost.

26 Florida Statute §112.08(2)(b)... After implementation of an approved plan, each local governmental unit or consortium shall annually submit to the Office of Insurance Regulation a report which includes a statement prepared by an actuary… as to the actuarial soundness of the plan. The report is due 90 days after the close of the fiscal year of the plan.

27 Review of Filings Show: Since 2006, small increases in funding have been consistently recommended These small increases have not been implemented and have increased in size annually As reserves decreased, recommendations have increased exponentially In 2006, the Premium Holiday was given even though a funding increase was recommended and not fully implemented.

28 Review of Filings Show: Insurance deficit occurred from inaction on recommendations unknown to employees Employees already face economic pressure from stagnant wage rates, inflation, 3% FRS state tax, and reductions in hours In addition, the District has proposed an exorbitant cost shift to the employees for health care Employees should not be responsible to make up for the District’s failure to act in a timely manner!
