Leah, Dahlia, Lynne, Melissa, Elina, Adam, HR, Mark, Budget
M: more that had to be ribbed that originally thought. Asked HR and Budget to come out to help explain what happened at budget table. Really tried to honor everything that CSC asked for. Budget is here to explain the budget.
Budget: Here to support budget. Wants to make sure everyone understands school based budget.
· Explains SBB (SChool Based Budget) DPS allocates dollars per students, unlike other districts, separate allocations for FRL, special needs, ELL’s. Bottom line kids increase, schools budget increases

M: Asks for questions
Member asks why we did not have these numbers
Budget: says that we do not have this information til budget
M: clarifies the money that was given last fall?
Budget: yes, last year when budget was created BC was projected, and then down 50 kids. District allocated amount to help students.
M: so we are deducting it now because we got it in the fall?
Budget: we are not deducting it now, the difference between FY16 and FY 17
M: so you are saying we have to pay back?
Budget: No, you have less to spend in FY17. We had it to fund FY16, you do not have it to spend now.
M: the $20k?
Budget; It was like short term loan
M: I am going to move to what reductions were. We took CSC recommendations, we were able to convert the TLC to .5 teacher, we reduced 1 para, we tried to not reduce the other .5 para, the reduction includes them not working non student contact days, we reduced two teachers, 1 will be in ⅘ we looked at district priorities which is Literacy in K-1. Best combination will be ⅔ and then in ⅘. Those teachers will be platooning or teaching block schedule. They will need to be S in order to support this. The SLT will look to help figure out schedule. We reduced some out of the general budget. We tried to look at everything in the building, little from here little from there. We tried to trim down everywhere. We were able to put the 33k back in to make the .5 PE and the .5 Dance. Reduced nurse to 1 day, HealthTec to 5 days, we reduced Mental health, we asked for budget assistance, and for a 1.0.
M: so you can repeat ⅔
L: it is a second grade 2S, 3S, ⅔ E. In ⅘ they will have to be S.
A: it is important to clarify that the teacher will have to be S certified because 1 group will be in S as they move in the 3 blocks. you have 3 classrooms, given schedule, each teacher they see has to be S certified. Originally it was discussed there would be ELA E/S, that is
M: clarifies that E teachers will be ribbed then they will be rehired with S teachers.
M: in ⅔ there will be 3 teachers, 1 is 3 S, 1 is E, one is ⅔ E/S split. How will we house them?
L; SLT will have to decide, and how to use para support, TLC support, that is a good point, and SLT will have to take into consideration
M; so basically in ⅔ one ELA E teacher will be leaving?
L: yes, that is correct.
M: will we get specifics?
L; yes we will get letter out.
M: it would be nice if before end of day everyone checks and approves it. If you make a change, send a change version.
M: so before we conclude, I know we had put on a wish list.
L; so that money is earmarked specifically for support, it is not money that can be touched.
