Superintendent McCullough Announces Budget Reductions
|With the devastating reductions expected in state foundation and grant funding next year, the AISD will need to make deep budgetary reductions in all areas. With a possible $48 million shortfall, we cannot wait to begin taking action. At tonight's board meeting, I will announce $15.3 million in reductions for the 2011-2012 school year. I invite you to view this brief message about the budget reductions that I will announce tonight. In addition to these planned reductions, there are other reductions being considered for the future. Information about these possible reductions can be found at aisd.net/budget.|
I am proud of the work we do here in the AISD, and I appreciate the hard work and dedication of every AISD employee and the support of the community. I will continue to share information regarding our budget as it becomes available. I urge you to contact your legislators about keeping the state cuts to public education funding to a minimum and using the rainy day fund.
