  • 1. The Bainbridge Island Story Bainbridge Island School District Budget January 2010
  • 2. The Funding Gap Washington State does not fully fund K-12 public education.
    • State funding has not kept up with educational costs:
      • – Washington State’s per-pupil funding has fallen from 11 th in the
      • nation (1993) to 44 th (2009). – The Quality Counts Report
      • – K-12 education has fallen from 50% of the state budget in the 1980s to 41% of the current budget.
      • – The State does not provide funds to cover the cost for construction or renovation of schools. It may provide a partial “match.”
    • Examples of our funding gap: In 2008-09
      • – State Ranking: BISD ranked in the bottom 21% of WA State school districts in per pupil revenue (232 nd out of 295 districts).
      • – BISD paid $7.2 M for positions not funded through the State.
      • – Transportation costs exceeded state revenue by $545 K.
      • – Special education costs were $1 M above the state allocation.
  • 3. General Fund: Revenue Sources State Funds (64%) Local Non-Tax (8%) - Foundation, PTO, Fees Local Ed. Program & Operations Levy (21%) BISD Levy “Lid” = 24.9% Of State/Federal Allocations Some other districts have been allowed to have higher “lids” due to “grandfather- ing” Federal Funds (7%) 2009-10 Budget = $36.5 M
  • 4. BISD Depends on Local Support
    • The local Educational Programs and Operations Levy pays for 21% of the total operating budget. It pays for staff and services not fully funded by the state:
    • – 80 full time staff positions
    • – Instructional supplies, materials
    • – Special education programs
    • – Transportation
    • Local non-tax dollars from PTOs, the Bainbridge Schools Foundation and fee increases pay for staff and programs not funded by the state
    • The local levy and non-tax dollars represent almost 30% of the district's operating budget.
  • 5. Comparison Data
    • BISD Per Pupil Revenue (2007-08): $8,949

    • Last spring, WA State worked to fill a $9 B gap in the 2009-11 budget. Funding for K-12 educational programs was cut.
    • Federal stimulus dollars reduced this gap by about $3 B .
    • BISD cut $2.1 M from the 2009-10 General Fund Budget.
    • (after cutting $1.5 M the year before.)

      • Reducing services & programs: transportation, print shop, outdoor ed, etc.
      • Reducing staff positions, work time: administrators, elem. librarians, nurses, counselors, bus drivers, paraeducators, custodians, groundskeeper, etc.
