  • Measures of Success are Plentiful 42% of all Miscoe students are in a performing arts group The Partners Advancing Literacy (PAL) Program enhances students’ literacy skills while fostering a lifelong love of reading
  • Keep in mind… House/Senate budgets will be in draft this month… “hold harmless” provision in place We will continue to maximize efficiencies- e.g., in Energy, Health Insurance, and Special Education Immediate priorities remain continuous improvement: of teaching and learning in the MURSD as well as the district’s fiscal health
  • In Summary…The Proposed FY13 MURSD Budget successfully meets all ofits goalsThe very conservative 0.68% increase will not require anProposition 2 ½ override requestMany critical needs still remain that must be part of theMURSD Strategic Plan, 2012-17 (e.g., STEM, Full day K,classroom technology, more school-to-career opportunities,etc.)We will craft specific, programmatic goals and objectivesdirectly to our budgeting process for FY14 and beyond
