District officials to hold last budget meeting with public


Last community meeting on district's budget tonight

District officials have concluded their presentation to City Council on their 2011-12 $2.8 billion operating budget proposal, but the budget debate and inquiries are far from over. Chief Financial Officer Mike Masch will hold one last budget meeting with the public tonight at Imhotep Institute Charter School. The two-hour meeting, to begin at 7, at the school at 6201 N. 21st Street, will focus on charter schools.

Like in previous community meetings regarding the budget, Masch and district officials will outline the proposed budget and field comments and questions from the community, like for instance, how did the district come to have a $629 million deficit?

The general public, parents, teachers, students and all stakeholders are encouraged to attend.

Keep in mind, the School Reform Commission is expected to adopt a final budget on May 31.
