In the new budget, expenses exceed revenues by $248,192. The district's ending balance is $2.1 million, and its remaining one time reserve totals $4.5 million. Additionally, the district's reserve for economic uncertainties is $6 million.
Expenditures have increased due to growth of new positions, according to staff reports. General Education staff has been increased by 30 full-time employees, and General Education classified staffing has increased by 17 full-time employees. The budget will be revised after Gov. Schwarzenegger signs the state budget.
