A new school year is right around the corner, but unfortunately an old challenge still looms - closing the budget shortfall. Below is a link to a presentation I made to the Board of Education at their regular meeting in July and the video of that presentation.

The presentation provides an overview of the deficit from January of last year to now, an explanation of some of the challenges regarding closing or repurposing a building, changing elementary school, boundaries, and issues to address moving forward.

Though we provide the presentation as a separate link in addition to the video of the meeting, we ask that you watch the video as it provides explanation of the presentation slides as well as questions asked by Board members and the related responses.
