“We must innovate and build our way to a better fiscal day in AAPS.” –Superintendent Dr. Swift.
Ann Arbor school officials have given state lawmakers a laundry list of ideas for specific action to assist public schools and the way they are funded. And they have made it clear how angry they are about the state proposal to shift $900 million from the School Aid Fund to higher education. The School Aid Fund has always been used solely for K-12 schools funding, but proposals this year would change that. Trustee Andy Thomas called the matter ‘a gross violation of the public trust,” during a May 6 forum.
During a budget forum Monday, Interim Superintendent Robert Allen shared proposed reductions for the 2011-12 budget and said that the district will host a May 6 session with school board members and state legislators at Pioneer High School starting at 5:30 p.m. A second budget forum will be at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, April 28 at Skyline High School.
Sessions are scheduled for Monday, April 25 in the Pioneer High School Cafeteria Annex and on Thursday, April 28 in the Skyline High School commons area; both meetings start at 6:30 p.m.. Pioneer is at the southwest corner of Main Street and Stadium Blvd. and Skyline is on North Maple Road just north of the M-14 interchange.
A series of briefs from around the district including: Budget information sessions next week, community volunteers sought for Tappan seed planting day April 13; Early College Alliance information night is April 12; and interviews scheduled for two WISD superintendent finalists.
Increased retirement costs from the state, a shift in K-12 funding and an upcoming May 3 special education millage election will all impact the budget, says Ann Arbor’s superintendent.
The Ann Arbor Public Schools will host a budget-millage information session on Monday, March 21 from 6:30 – 8 p.m. at the Pioneer High School Cafeteria Annex, 601 W. Stadium Blvd. Discussed will be the current state of Ann Arbor’s budget and the impact of an upcoming May 3 countywide special education millage.
