NEIHOF: Thoughts about a tough budget for 2011-12

-A A +A

This next school year's financial picture will not get easier.

By James Neihof

The news from Frankfort regarding funding for education has been as gloomy as the recent weather. Last fall we received the news that half of the district’s professional development funds would not be coming from the state. In mid-winter we were notified that the school district was losing more than $500,000 in funding for the current school year.  Then about a month ago, we received notice of more than $300,000 in reduced state revenue for next year.

How do we plan for such shortfalls?

That’s a tough one to answer.
