The Good News




The district is optimistically hopeful the state
budget will spare further reductions to public
education.
AUSD has not reduced the school year for
students. The state reported that 60% of districts
reduced the school year in 2010-11.
AUSD staff has not had to address furlough days
or salary/benefit reductions.
District reserves allow planning time if further
cuts are included in the adopted state budget.
The Bad News
Tax extensions continue to be a stumbling
block in Sacramento and another late budget
is predicted.
 A late budget adoption could equal mid-year
cuts.
 Current Parcel Tax dollars will need to
continue to support core programs and
Measure I expires June 2015.
 Federal Stimulus dollars are one-time funds
and end in 2011-12.

Other Funds




The Child Development Fund, with concessions
from employees and program restructuring is
projected to be self-supporting.
 They are also projected to repay the $500,000
district loan for 2010-11.
The Adult Education Fund continues to be a
concern and fees/programs may need to be
addressed as the year progresses.
The Cafeteria Fund is self-supporting.
Fund 17 – Strategic Plan funds will continue to
support plan implementation.
What’s Next?

State adopts budget

Adopted budget will be analyzed to determine
variances from current assumptions

The impact of the State budget and proposed
budget adjustments will be presented to the
Board
