School district budget ‘positive’

By
From page A3 | May 17, 2013 |

The Black Oak Mine Unified School District Board of Trustees met on May 2 to discuss items on the agenda, including the continuing hot topic of classified/certificated layoffs. The meeting began with a BOMTA (teachers’ union) update as well as a student representative update. Local high school graduations are planned for June 6 (Golden Sierra) at 7 p.m., and June 5 (Divide High) at 6 p.m. Wayne Sjolund gave an update on various district building projects.

Dr. Robert Williams shared the Second Interim (budget) Report results, which can be found online at BOMUSD.org.

“I want to take a minute to clarify, that having a qualified budget is different than having a positive budget, and having either does not mean we are going to cut more than we need,” he said. “As this report indicates, due to our declining enrollment, we would still need to make cuts, because we are deficit spending. As anyone who has lost a job and has credit card debt understands, eventually the money runs out. It’s like chasing a snowball down a hill.”

Dr. Williams continued to explain the report, with additional financial details added by Roslynne Manansala-Smith. The Second Interim Report outlines the cash flow scenario and predictions over the next few years. The district is currently operating under deficit spending, and with declining enrollment and limited revenue enhancements there are few solutions to solving the budget crisis facing BOMUSD.

“We are getting revised sheets daily,” added Dr. Williams. “Roslynne is trying to organize all of the data and provide as much to the board as we can.”

The district is searching for solutions to meet the financial gap (nearly $500,000) and is considering all possible solutions.
