    • CURRENT FINANCIAL CONDITION • Projected revenue for 2012-13 is about the same as actual revenue in 2005-06 • Even after taking into account new revenues and expenditure reductions, projected deficit for 2012- 13 remains at $2.4 million and over $9 million in 2013- 14 • It could get worse … • Governor’s Budget Proposal includes November Tax Initiative with “trigger” to reduce to 159 instructional days • Governor’s Budget Proposal includes “Weighted Student Funding” model that reduces CUSD categorical funding to $04/18/2012 21

    • ENROLLMENT PROJECTIONS: HTTP://BIT.LY/ZMYQHM4/18/2012 28
    • BV PROJECTIONS: CONSERVATIVE & MODERATE4/18/2012 Source: Decision Insight 2011 Study 29
    • MAGNOLIA PROJECTIONS: CONSERVATIVE & MODERATE4/18/2012 30
    • CONSERVATIVE TOTALS: BV + MAG • 2012: 733 • 2013: 765 • 2014: 788 • 2015: 811 • 2016: 798 • 2017: 786 • 2018: 786 • 2019: 787 • 2020: 7814/18/2012 31
    • MODERATE TOTALS: BV + MAG • 2012: 781 • 2013: 833 • 2014: 893 • 2015: 932 • 2016: 936 • 2017: 930 • 2018: 944 • 2019: 951 • 2020: 9594/18/2012 32
    • BV + MAG PROJECTIONS Year Conservative Moderate 2012 733 781 2013 765 833 2014 788 893 2015 811 932 2016 798 936 2017 786 930 2018 786 944 2019 787 951 2020 781 9594/18/2012 33
    • MAGNOLIA CAPACITY • Magnolia has a maximum capacity of 1,108 students • Kindergarten classrooms currently have capacity of 128 students. • Presuming 1/6 of students in each grade: • At conservative peak of 811 students in 2015: 135 students in kindergarten • At moderate peak of 959 students in 2020: 160 students in kindergarten • In either scenario, at least one classroom adaptation to kindergarten space would likely be necessary within the next three years • Grades 1-5 would have ample room with current facilities4/18/2012 34
    • ALL ELEMENTARY: MODERATE4/18/2012 35
    • ELEMENTARY ENROLLMENT PROJECTIONS • Declining enrollment projected at the following schools: • Aviara Oaks Elementary • Calavera Hills Elementary • Pacific Rim Elementary • Poinsettia Elementary • Growth enrollment projected at the following schools: • Hope Elementary • Jefferson Elementary • Kelly Elementary4/18/2012 36
    • ENROLLMENT & BOUNDARY IMPLICATIONS • Due to relatively low levels of total growth at K-5 schools through 2020, we have excess “capacity” at the elementary level • Moderate projection for 2020 is 5500 students in grades K-5 • Current enrollment in grades K-5 is 5163 (as of 3/29) • Complications exist due to projected decline in enrollment in South Carlsbad and projected increase in enrollment in North Carlsbad • Conclusion: Buena Vista closure would likely require serious boundary adjustments within 5-7 years4/18/2012 37
    • SAFE ROUTES • CUSD Meetings with City of Carlsbad • Large number of streets without sidewalks • Some students would cross Carlsbad Village Drive and/or El Camino Real • Student safety is a genuine concern4/18/2012 38
    • STUDENT TRANSFERS • Student transfer window can be extended for BV families after April 25th • Attendance Boundary could be determined in May or June4/18/2012 39
    • PRESCHOOL • Facility Analysis demonstrates that preschool can be relocated to Magnolia • Kelly Elementary was considered and deemed impractical due to access issues4/18/2012 40
    • TITLE I • CUSD total allocation unaffected by potential school closures • Distribution of Title I money within CUSD dependent on distribution of eligible students. • Hypothetical #1: All BV students go to Magnolia, Magnolia becomes Title I school, Magnolia allocation higher than BV because distribution would include current Magnolia students that do not receive Title I dollars. • In this scenario, current Title I schools would get less money next year • Hypothetical #2: BV students disperse to multiple schools. Not enough eligible students go to Magnolia or Hope. • Existing Title I sites would get more money next year • More Info: http://www.cde.ca.gov/sp/sw/t1/titleparta.asp4/18/2012 41
