Multiyear Financial Projections The district should: Begin preparing immediately for a period of fiscal instability. Adopt a budget and multiyear projections that eliminate deficit spending and meet reserve requirements in the budget and projection years. Develop staffing formulas for all positions and ensure that ratios are: Within employee contract guidelines Meet students’ needs Agree with approved goals and objectives Maintain fiscal solvency
Multiyear Financial Projections The district should: Review contributions to restricted programs and ensure that all restricted programs are self-sustaining, except special education and home-to-school transportation. Review its RDA agreements and determine if these funds may be used for the routine restricted maintenance and/or the deferred maintenance contributions. Review estimated enrollment and ADA calculations to ensure that they are accurate and conservative.
Multiyear Financial Projections The district should: Consult with legal counsel and its independent auditors to determine whether it should abandon plans for implementing a kindergarten program for four- year-olds. Immediately review and analyze the impacts of home foreclosures on its enrollment. Ensure that current and future enrollment projections have an increased focus on the effect of foreclosures and residential housing starts.
Multiyear Financial Projections The district should: Ensure that its governing board immediately begins making decisions to address any conditions in the district that are indicators of fiscal distress. Ensure that multiyear financial projections are accurate and up to date.
Staffing The district should: Fill the assistant superintendent of business services position with a permanent, full-time employee. Position should be comparable to other cabinet-level positions Position should report directly to the superintendent
