    Funding Challenges

    • Population increased but demographics changed

    • Declining enrollments – down 42 student in 12 months; 100 since 2010

    • School funding:

    ­State requires Districts to adopt 80% of adequate budget

    ­20% is dependent on passing local levies

    • After 1997 only 3 out of 17 funding requests have passed

    • Estimate $700,000+ shortfall over the next five years
