January 20, 2021 Update: The School Board approved the Budget Opt-Out Resolution at the January 19 School Board meeting.
January 11, 2021 Update: At the January 11, 2021 School Board meeting, Business Director Rob Geletko presented an overview of the preliminary budget budget for the 2021-2022 school year. Also discussed was the the Budget Opt-Out resolution that the District will not seek referendum exceptions beyond the Act 1 Index, which the Board will vote on at the January 19, School Board meeting. The resolution states:
Accelerated Budget Opt-Out Resolution – The District must approve a Budget Resolution to meet the statutory requirements of the Act 1 Timeline in January at least 110 days prior to the Primary Election. The Act 1 Index for the 2021-2022 School Year is 3.5%, equating to .8676 mills. This Opt-Out Resolution certifies that the revenue sources, including our fund balance, will be sufficient to balance the final budget in May by an amount less than or equal to the Act 1 Index. Preliminary projections confirm the Boards ability to balance the budget within these current parameters adequately. The Superintendent recommends approval of this resolution.
Business Director Rob Geletko presented the findings of the 2019-2020 Audit Report at the November 16 School Board meeting. The video presentation is posted below.
