Board Indicators of Success Student Achievement – All students demonstrate proficiency in math and reading as established by District standards. The gap in achievement between subgroups decreases annually as overall performance increases. All students gain at least one year’s growth annually. This indicator focuses on, but is not limited to, reading by the end of third grade. Professional Development – All staff are engaged in on-going professional development that ensures effective instructional and intervention strategies are employed across the district. Professional development is aligned to student learning priorities. Attendance: Student and Staff – Daily attendance rates for students and staff increase annually.
Board Indicators of Success Graduation Rate – All students graduate within four years of entering as freshmen. Grade Level Core Standards – District core standards in math and reading are aligned with established “world class” standards. Resource Allocation – Financial resources are allocated to ensure realization of District-established student achievement goals in the most efficient manner. Students Enter School Ready to Learn – All students enter school ready to succeed, having been provided with essential pre-kindergarten experiences to insure success in school.

The Challenge Current projected revenue $64,780,625 Current projected expenses $67,006,668 Deficit(-$2,226,044)
Revenue Uncertainty Variables: $1.1 million in one-time state monies (+$250,000) in CBJ lower cap possibilities CBJ full funding vs last year $500,000 under cap CBJ activities funding which was reduced $392,000 last year.
State of the State Senate President Kevin Meyers (Republican from Anchorage) outlined the priorities: 1. Develop a fiscal plan to address the $3.5+B deficit. 2. Pursue affordable energy – gas pipeline, partner with private sector. 3. Education
State of the State It was stated that education remains high on their priority list. When asked if there will be any changes to education policy or funding, Senate President Meyer said he doesn't anticipate any changes (Senate Education Chair Dunleavy was out sick). Because of the fiscal climate they do not anticipate increases but rather protecting the funding they have already allocated. It was stated that education would not be as big a topic as it has been in the past. Governor Walker stated, “The role of government is to… provide the education necessary (for Alaskans) to pursue a livelihood”. He continued, “Government should not be in the business of taking care of every last detail, but we must provide the necessary services”.
State of the State Assuming the legislature approves Governor Walker’s budget, we can expect to receive $1.1 million less from the state than we got last year. This is a double whammy because it reduces the cap for CBJ by another $250,000 Last year CBJ funded us $500,000 under cap Last year CBJ cut $392,000 from the monies they give us for student activities.
#1 Priority: Student Achievement Student achievement is primarily affected by the interactions that occur between adults and the student. The majority of those interactions occur with a teacher in a classroom. (Who) The gap in achievement between subgroups must be decreased. This requires identification, support, individualization and follow-up by trained staff. (Who, What, How) District core standards must be aligned with established “world class” standards. (What) Staff must be engaged in on-going professional development that ensures effective instructional and intervention strategies are employed across the district. (How)

Some Assumptions Closing an elementary school saves us little, probably <$100,000 when it’s all said and done. Neither of our high schools have enough square ft. to house all of our students. Closing a high school would likely save no money at all and could potentially COST the district $300,000. Increasing PTR by 1 student saves $307,818 K-2 $153, $256, $266,

In the End While we support the current instructional strategies that are effectively contributing to the priorities of higher student achievement and graduation rates, nothing in the current budget is off the table. Our staff understands how serious this is and are watching every dime. It looks like we might come in under budget this year, which will give us some breathing room for unexpected expenses next year.
