    Budget report

    Carole Nielsen, director of finance, presented the 2016-2017 projected budgets for nutrition services, community services, capital outlay and debt service funds. While these budgets are an integral part of school operations, they operate financially in separate funds or reserves. These budgets will be included in the final budget document that will be presented to the Board for approval at the June 28, 2016, School Board meeting.

    Enrollment report

    Enrollment projections for the 2016-17 school year indicate an anticipated enrollment of 11,069 students, which would represent an increase of 47 students from the projections made in February.

    District Operational Plan

    Each year, the School Board approves a series of goals and related activities on which the Superintendent and Cabinet will focus their work. This is known as the District Operational Plan (DOP). At the May 17 School Board meeting, Superintendent Dan Hoverman presented a review of the priority goals outlined for the 2016-2017 school year. Priority goals include:
    • Provide development for new administrative team leaders by setting expectations around partnership, professional culture and a commitment to the Equity Promise.
    • Enhance STEAM programming within the District by focusing on facilities, programming and curriculum, training and technology.
    • Review current school start times at all levels and develop options as appropriate based on the findings of the review.
    • Determine buildings’ capacities to absorb more students and yet maintain optimum opportunities for a healthy learning climate for 21st century learning.
