Summary of Proposed Changes
J.14. HOLD A PUBLIC HEARING REGARDING THE 2018-2019 PROPOSED BUDGET (Y. Balladares)
Rationale:
The Governor's May Revise budget proposal recently provided the details of the State's education budget proposed for 2018-2019. Those details are the basis upon which school districts will base revenue and expenditure projections for the 2018-2019 adopted budget.
 
Comments:

Tonight's report projects revenue and expenditure details as follows:

  • The estimated 2017-2018 Restricted and Unrestricted Ending fund Balance and hence the estimated Beginning Balance for 2018-19 is $32,356,836. Final numbers for 2017-18 will be reported this fall in the Unaudited Actual Budget Report following the year-end closeout.
  • Total projected revenues are $186 million.
  • Total projected expenditures and transfers are $183 million.
  • The net difference between revenues and expenditures $3 million assumes that all expenditures are made in 2017-2018.
  • The 2018-2019 reserve line item is approximately $35 million and includes the minimum of three percent (3%) adopted by the State Board of Education and an additional two percent (2%) or approximately $9.2 million designated for statutory and Board reserve for economic uncertainty. The remaining amount, consisting of set aside for Restricted Resources $3.3 million, Facilities Emergency Repairs $5 million and set aside to cover deficit spending in out years $17.5 million.

This proposed budget would receive a Positive Certification from the Fresno County Office of Education, meaning we can meet our 2018-2019 financial obligations plus two additional years.

Required notice was posted in the Fresno Bee on May 22, 2018, indicating Central Unified's intention to hold a public hearing on the proposed budget on June 12, 2018.

It is required that a balanced budget be adopted and submitted to the Fresno County Office of Education no later than June 30, 2018.

Financial Impact:
The proposed budget provides resources specifically prioritized to support District academic goals as prescribed by the District's adopted Guiding Principles. This budget also incorporates revisions to 2017-2018 revenues and expenditures.
