8 STATE BEP REVENUE The BEP formula is strictly a comprehensive funding formula. It is not a spending plan or budget. The BEP formula determines the funding level that each school system earns to provide a basic level of service to all students. The formula is based on student membership. The formula keeps up with the increased cost of education from year to year, using inflation-adjusted cost components. Each school system has flexibility in determining the appropriate use of state funds to best meet the needs of the school system and the applicable requirements of state laws and regulations. 8

9 REVENUE SUMMARY Approximate $ Increase vs Local Revenue +$ 323,000 (+ 1.4%) State Revenue +$2,531,000 (+ 5.9%) Federal/Other Rev +$ 25,000 (+ 6.4%) TOTAL INCREASE IN BUDGETED REVENUE + 2,879,000 (+ 4.4%) 9

10 EQUITIES (RESERVES) What is the appropriate level of “Unassigned” Reserve that should be maintained in the General Purpose School Fund? The answer to this questions varies, depending on whom you consult. For example, the Government Finance Officers Association recommends no less than 8% of operating expenditures. Ron Woody of County Technical Assistance Service recommends 10% as the appropriate level. Bradley County policy requires us to keep at least 5% in the unassigned reserve. My recommendation for an unassigned reserve is to maintain between 6% and 10% of expenditures. If the unassigned reserve approaches 10%, the Board should consider some NON-RECURRING expenditures. If the unassigned reserve approaches 6%, the Board should be more conservative in budgeting and expending funds. 10

15 BUDGET CHALLENGES The Economy Slow growth in sales tax & property tax Retirement (Pension) Costs Medical Insurance Student ADM As stated by the State Board of Education, “student enrollment is the primary driver of funds generated by the BEP”. It also determines the division of local funds between school systems. 15
