III. PUBLIC HEARING
This ordinance will appropriate to the School District an FY09 operating budget of $83,760,100. The School District’s operating budget is.
• General Operations $67,870,300
• Special Revenue (pupil transportation, food service, etc) 5,192,700
• Other Operations (student activities, debt service, grants, etc) 10,697,100
Total Budget $83,760,100
The FY09 school budget is supported by a combination of funding sources that includes local funding of $24,132,000 for general operations, $200,000 for student activities, and $135,000 for Community Schools. The $24,132,000 in general operating support will fund the School District to the State Foundation Funding Formula maximum amount.
State Statute requires the Assembly to determine the total amount of local educational funding support to be provided, and provide notification of the support to the School Board within 30 days of the School District’s budget submission. To meet this timing provision, it is necessary for the Assembly to determine the amount of funding and provide notice in the month of April. This amount cannot subsequently be reduced, unless the amount exceeds the State funding CAP; however, it can be increased. If the Assembly does not set the amount and furnish the School Board with notice within 30 days, the amount requested by the School District is automatically approved. By Charter, the Assembly is required to appropriate the School District’s budget no later than May 31, 2008.
If the Assembly does not adopt the entire School District budget at this time, a Special Assembly meeting will be required before May 31 and is tentatively scheduled for May 21, 2008.
I recommend this ordinance be adopted.
This ordinance would appropriate the City and Borough of Juneau’s FY09 operating budget, excluding the School District. The Charter requires that a public hearing be held on the FY09 operating budget by May 1, 2008, and adoption by June 15, 2008.
I recommend this ordinance be referred to the Finance Committee.
