Last week Superintendent Green presented the administration’s first swing at a FY 2019 GENERAL FUND BUDGET. Revenues are expected to go up by $50 million to $1.063 billion. The administration is asking to increase expenses by $60 million to $1.080 billion.
The biggest increase is going to TRS funding; an additional $24 million over last year. This also includes a 1.1% raise across the board for all employees. A Compensation and Classification (Comp & Class) study will be coming out shortly and the raises may be adjusted accordingly.
Generally speaking, the administration under estimates revenues and over estimates expenses. It’s a lot more padded than I would like, but this gives us an idea of where we are. I recommend school councils take a glance at their school funding numbers and meet with their principal over the funding implications.
