Budget Matters and Textbooks on School Board Agenda Tonight

Meeting set to start at 5 p.m.

The Governing Board of the Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District has a packed agenda to deal with during tonight’s meeting.

The board, which meets at 5 p.m. at 2490 Hilborn Road, room No. 108 in Fairfield, will be discussing high school proficiency, educational materials and money matters during the open portion of the agenda.

During a public hearing, the board will be asked to approve resolutions that certify the district will provide sufficient instructional materials for core areas and a certification of Provision of Standard-Aligned Instruction ACTION materials.

According to Kris Corey, Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services, local governing boards are required to certify that each pupil in the district has, or will have prior to the end of that year, sufficient textbooks or instructional materials in each subject. 

In other board action, the unaudited actual financial statements for the 2011-2012 school year will be reviewed for possible approval.

“In accordance with the education code on or before Sept. 17, the governing board is required to submit unaudited financial statements to the Solano County Superintendent of Schools,” stated Kelly Morgan, assistant superintendent of Business Services. “The district requested and received an extension of this due date from the Solano County Office of Education subsequently due to the retirement and hiring of key business office staff over the summer. This financial statement represents the financial status of all funds of the district as of June 30, 2012, and will be the basis for the 2011-2012 audit report.”

Highlighting the report are General Fund expenditures for 2012-2013 budget which total $143,645,135.00. Totals for 2011-2012 unrestricted and restricted unaudited actuals amounted to $148,853,938.10 which is a difference of -3.5 percent. For revenues, the 2012-13 budget total is $136,522,214.00 while the 2011-2012 unrestricted and restricted unaudited actuals amounted to $155,133,347.05 which is a difference of -12.0 percent.

In additional action, district staff will present a report on the High School Improvement Plan including an overview of the plan, activities completed to date, and specific actions for the 2012-2013 school year.
