I wanted to thank you all for your support during the current fiscal crisis in CPS. I only just received our budget adjustments last night at 5PM, however, we were prepared for this. We saw the second largest cuts by percentage (not dollar amount) in all of the district at 3.44%. Top 2 again :)
After a careful analysis of our funds and positions we have been able to determine that we will not need to cut any teachers or staff at this time. CPS is planning for additional cuts for next school year, however we will revisit those projections when provided to us in the Summer.
Katie and I will be putting together a formal presentation for Friday's open LSC meeting (8:30AM), and seeking approval from our LSC to make the needed transfers to balance our books by next Tuesday's deadline.
Thank you all for your support and patience as we work together to make this another successful year at Skinner North.
Have a great day, -Ethan & Katie
