  21. 21. Finance – Historical Perspective 2011 Legislative Session reduced all public school funding by $4 billion in foundation school program funding and an additional $1.5 billion in grant money for educational support programs. GISD has had to re-evaluate spending levels due to the reduction in State and Federal revenue and from budget adjustments related to frozen revenue levels (6 years) and increased operational costs.
  22. 22. Finance – Historical Perspective Georgetown ISD’s State revenue was reduced by $4.8M in 2011-12 and will be reduced an additional $2.4M in 2012-13. There were also other reductions in State grant funding and Federal entitlement money. GISD received $1.6M in EduJobs money in 2011-12 and will not receive these funds in future years.
  23. 23. Budget Review In2006, GISD became a Chapter 41 recapture district as legislative per student funding levels were frozen. There were continued staff additions to serve the 2-4% student growth. Operational expenditures increased to serve additional students/staff growth. Budgets increased annually (see slide). 87% of annual GISD budget is personnel.
