In his January 12, letter to families, Superintendent Nyland shares an update about the School Board's consensus of how to address $63.1 million of the district’s budget deficit. Initial reductions brought the $74.2 million dollar shortfall down to $44 million and included use of our reserve fund and other non-staff related reductions. The Board has approved a $4 million dollar reduction of central office. This is 5.3 percent of the central budget, larger than the school based reductions. These cuts will be determined in consultation with the School Board. Over the next few weeks, we will address the remaining $11.1 million dollar gap in order to start next school year with a balanced budget, which is required by state law.
Special Meeting of the Board on Jan. 11, was recorded. On January 4, at the regular Board meeting, the Seattle School Board delayed the Student Assignment Transition Plan vote in order to analyze the budget implications and gather additional data and feedback from SPS staff and the community. Because the original SAP vote would have been televised, Seattle Public Schools will broadcast the January 11 meeting.
From time to time, our normal operating hours or transportation services may be adjusted due to ice or snow.
