Community members, parents and district employees are invited to attend a budget reduction planning meeting scheduled for Monday, April 19, from 6:30-8:00 pm, at the district’s Educational Service Center.
An overview of the district’s budget will be presented and will reflect areas for consideration for budget cuts as a result of the state’s reduced funding of education. Last year the district implemented $3.9 million in reductions which will need to stay in place for the 2010-2011 school year.
Difficult decisions will need to be made by the school board in order to balance the district’s 2010-2011 budget.
This year’s reductions are projected to be approximately $2.5 million. Cuts of this magnitude will impact the delivery of education programs in our district, as well as districts across the state.
Budget information and a survey will be posted on the district’s website at www.lkstevens.wednet.edu
after April 15.
Your opinion is a significant component - please mark your calendar to attend this important budget reduction planning meeting. For questions call the Community Services Office at 425-335-1501.
