4.2. Request for Expenditure Exclusion for Additional 2% General Fund Growth
This requires approval of 75% of the Norfolk Board of Education.
This motion allows the district to request approval from the State Board of Education for the Expenditure Exclusion to access up to an amount equal to 2% of the district's 2012/2013 Certified General Fund Budget Authority. Upon State Board approval, the school district will access additional 2% General Fund Growth in the amount of $765,031.00. This amount is based on the 2012-2013 Certified Budget Authority of $38,251,559.
These dollars will be brought into the overall budget authority for 2013-2014.
By doing this we will have access to all of our allowed budget authority and gives us the ability to budget all of our cash reserves into the budget.
The district would also have access to any large grants during the fiscal year that would be above and beyond our normal expenditures.
Budget growth over the past few years has been very limited so approving this action would be fiscally prudent on the district's behalf. This does not effect the tax levy or any increased cost to our taxpayers.
To approve the access of the additional 2% general fund growth. Motion passed with a motion by Board Member #1 and a second by Board Member #2.
Board lunch with retiring superintendent, Marlene Uhing.
