General Budget Information FY 2015-16 General Fund revenue is relatively flat compared to current year The budget meets required contractual obligations All schools do not receive the same amount of money per pupil because: Some school funding is categorical (it has specific criteria on its spending) Funding for Comp Ed and Title I follow the students on a one year delay (previous year’s Oct 1 count) Higher poverty schools have greater access to categorical dollars than lower poverty sites School enrollment affects the dollars allocated
FY 2015-16 Title I Budget Projection 6 Reduction of $3.9 million $2.1 million in carryover funds from post ARRA funding are gone creating a funding cliff Without post ARRA funds and special waivers, impacts of TI reductions would have been felt sooner $1.8 million in Title I funds due to MN receiving less of the federal share MN has less students in poverty as compared to other states with higher concentrations of poverty FY 16 budget base estimated on previous year reduction of 6%.
7 Other Influencing Factors 3 rd quarter projections impact fiscal year end fund balance Enrollment fluctuations impact revenue, class size and building capacity Contractual settlements impact expenditure levels Legislative adjustments impact revenue Previous year’s October 1 Free & Reduced lunch count impacts revenue Bond ratings Funding has not kept up with inflation

Budget 2015-16 Budget for 2015-16 (when compared to 2014-15) reflects cut or reduction of: 1.5 teacher assistants (2 positions) - cut.25 library assistant reduced (was.5) 3.0 licensed teachers cut
Reasons for cuts/reduction Groveland is projected at 81 fewer students for 2015- 16 SPPS is facing a budget shortfall of $20 million Inflation (higher salaries, expenses) Title I has been reduced which affects all schools For more information on the district budget and how it affects all schools go to spps.org
How does the district forecast enrollment at Groveland? The district looks at percentages of present students who will return. This is called the continuation rate. The continuation rate is an average based on the last three years. Numbers for PreK, Kindergarten and new students are projected based on the number of applications.
Groveland’s Continuation Rates 2012-2015 Grade to GradeAverage rate and number of students returning in 2015-16 Kdg to Gr. 178% = 54 Students Gr. 1 to Gr. 287% = 80 Students Gr. 2 to Gr. 385% = 79 Students Gr. 3 to Gr. 487% = 75 Students Gr. 4 to Gr. 589% = 60 Students
Concerns with the projected enrollment for 2015- 16 Lower enrollment projection means fewer students and a smaller budget Based on the projection Groveland was budgeted for two first grades Having just two first grades may mean smaller growth in the years to come
One of the biggest challenges was only having two first grade classes. What was proposed to change that? Having 54 first graders would have meant two classes at grade one with 27 in each class. In order to provide room for more first grade students so Groveland can continue to increase the enrollment Groveland’s budget was cut a science specialist (leaving one science specialist) reduce the library teacher assistant time (from.5 to.25) cut the two regular education teacher assistants Increase art specialist time by.32 so all 17 classes have specialist time In 2014-15 the science teachers also taught classes in addition to science such and enrichment and intervention groups. This will not be possible in 2015-16. It was also decided that the additional classroom teacher would cover a first and second grade split or combination class to reduce the second grade class sizes.
What will the specialists be at Groveland in 2015-16? Specialist 2015-16Number of staff Science1.0 Music1.0 Physical Education1.0 Art.92 Total3.92 Students in grades K-5 will have music, art and gym in a rotation of 50 minutes per day for a week. Students in grades 1-5 will also have science two times a week for a total of 100 minutes of science a week.
Additional Information A total of 3 licensed teachers and 2 teacher assistant positions will be cut. Library teacher assistant time was reduced to.25. Further information will come out in May about the positions that were cut. In order to get the first/second grade split or combination class we are cutting one science teacher. However, we had to increase specialist time by a.32 FTE. To have the money for this 1.5 teacher assistants needed to be cut. The library TA position needed to be reduced from.5 to.25 and the supply budget had to be cut almost in half. Our proposed supply/materials budget is extremely limited and below what it has been in the past—it is usually around $30,000. It will be at about $16,000 for 2015-16. After submitting our request to have more first graders for 2015-16, we needed to received approval from the district. We received approval to do this as on 4/24/15. As a result of opening the first/second grade split or combination class the district placement office will be able to place more first graders in our building if they apply to Groveland. As of 4/27/15 Groveland will send letters to two new first graders who previously applied to Groveland but who were unable to get in because of space limitations.
