Dr. Guess will make an announcement next Tuesday, February 14 at the School Board meeting regarding budget cuts. Chair Fitzgiven asked to get a copy. Dr. Guess stated he did not want to give a copy until the Board saw it first, but would share with the committee. The District is looking at approximately $66,000 more in cuts.
Instructional Facilitators: If an elementary has 300 or less students, it will have 1 IF—over 300 students the elementary will have 2 IFs. This will be a million-dollar savings to the District. Secondary schools will have a team of 6 IFs to work within the feeder patterns with the exception of Mills. Because Mills is still in academic distress they will have 4 Ifs—2 at Fuller and 2 at Mills.
Cuts to classified—The District will lose 20 buses next year. Cuts will be made to maintenance as well.
Special Ed is looking at how they can make changes. Para educators for CBI may have to get CDL license.

Dr. Guess agreed to let Chair Fitzgiven write language changes to bring back to committee next month.

The District will follow the 2016-17 calendar for the one make-up day.
