SF School District's 2010 Budget To Include Cuts

April 9, 2009, 4:50 PM by Brian Kushida

SF School District's 2010 Budget To Include Cuts
The Sioux Falls School Board has just started work on the 2010 budget. Thanks to federal and state aid and stimulus money, the general fund is $6.6 million more than last year.  But the district's planning to spend just $5.9 million to make up for last year's spending and to balance the budget by 2015.  Nothing is finalized but the Sioux Falls School board is scaling back.

"It's important that we look hard (at the budget)  and make every dollar go as far as it can," Sioux Falls School Board President Darin Daby said.

The proposed cuts and reductions total $585,000, and board members say they won't affect the quality of your child's education.

One of the biggest changes would affect busing. The district hopes to save more than a quarter million dollars by changing Middle School start times, combining four bus routes into two and instead of bringing students in the English Language Learners program to their teachers, the teachers would come to them.

Close to $200,000 would be cut from high school and elementary supplies.

"We're asking each of the buildings to do the same or more with less," Daby said.

And rather than having teachers supervise lunch, the district could save $109,000 by possibly turning to teachers aides. If approved, the changes would start in July.

Keep in mind stimulus money and Title one funds can't be used to balance the district's budget. All of the extra money the district receives this year has to either create or enhance programs. The School board is expected to tentatively agree on the changes on Monday, but the final decision won't come until July.
