Super Site Council Review
Next, David will take us through the handouts compiled from
the Super Site Council meeting held on January 15th.
Principals have been asked, at our upcoming budget forums, to:
● Report on the opinions of their site councils
● Give a brief overview of their “takeaways)” from the Super
Site Council meeting
● If they are comfortable, to give their professional opinion on
what could be cut and how difficult this is for them and their
sites.
Board Indicators of Success
Student Achievement – All students demonstrate proficiency in math and
reading as established by District standards. The gap in achievement between
subgroups decreases annually as overall performance increases. All students
gain at least one year’s growth annually. This indicator focuses on, but is not
limited to, reading by the end of third grade.
Professional Development – All staff are engaged in on-going professional
development that ensures effective instructional and intervention strategies are
employed across the district. Professional development is aligned to student
learning priorities.
Attendance: Student and Staff – Daily attendance rates for students and
staff increase annually.
Board Indicators of Success
Graduation Rate – All students graduate within four years of entering as
freshmen.
Grade Level Core Standards – District core standards in math and reading are
aligned with established “world class” standards.
Resource Allocation – Financial resources are allocated to ensure realization of
District-established student achievement goals in the most efficient manner.
Students Enter School Ready to Learn – All students enter school ready to
succeed, having been provided with essential pre-kindergarten experiences to
insure success in school.

The Challenge
Current projected revenue
$64,780,625
Current projected expenses
$67,006,668
Deficit
(-$2,226,044)
Revenue Uncertainty
Variables:
• $1.1 million in one-time state monies (+$250,000)
in CBJ lower cap possibilities
• CBJ full funding vs last year $500,000 under cap
• CBJ activities funding which was reduced $392,000
last year.
State of the State
Senate President Kevin Meyers (Republican from
Anchorage) outlined the priorities:
1. Develop a fiscal plan to address the $3.5+B deficit.
2. Pursue affordable energy – gas pipeline, partner with
private sector.
3. Education
State of the State
•
It was stated that education remains high on their priority list. When
asked if there will be any changes to education policy or funding, Senate
President Meyer said he doesn't anticipate any changes (Senate Education
Chair Dunleavy was out sick).
•
Because of the fiscal climate they do not anticipate increases but rather
protecting the funding they have already allocated. It was stated that
education would not be as big a topic as it has been in the past.
•
Governor Walker stated, “The role of government is to… provide the
education necessary (for Alaskans) to pursue a livelihood”. He continued,
“Government should not be in the business of taking care of every last
detail, but we must provide the necessary services”.
State of the State
• Assuming the legislature approves Governor Walker’s
budget, we can expect to receive $1.1 million less from the
state than we got last year. This is a double whammy because
it reduces the cap for CBJ by another $250,000
• Last year CBJ funded us $500,000 under cap
• Last year CBJ cut $392,000 from the monies they give us for
student activities.
#1 Priority:
Student Achievement
•
Student achievement is primarily affected by the interactions that occur
between adults and the student. The majority of those interactions occur with
a teacher in a classroom. (Who)
•
The gap in achievement between subgroups must be decreased. This requires
identification, support, individualization and follow-up by trained staff.
(Who, What, How)
•
District core standards must be aligned with established “world class”
standards. (What)
•
Staff must be engaged in on-going professional development that ensures
effective instructional and intervention strategies are employed across the
district. (How)

Some Assumptions
• Closing an elementary school saves us little, probably
<$100,000 when it’s all said and done.
• Neither of our high schools have enough square ft. to house all
of our students. Closing a high school would likely save no
money at all and could potentially COST the district $300,000.
• Increasing PTR by 1 student saves
• $307,818 K-2
• $153,906 3-5
• $256,512 6-8
• $266,776 9-12

In the End
• While we support the current instructional strategies that are
effectively contributing to the priorities of higher student
achievement and graduation rates, nothing in the current
budget is off the table.
• Our staff understands how serious this is and are watching
every dime. It looks like we might come in under budget this
year, which will give us some breathing room for unexpected
expenses next year.
