CCSD FY 2011 Budget

Adoption of a tentative budget and tentative millage rate for FY 2011 are items 15 and 16 under “New Business” on tonight’s Clarke County Board of Education agenda. The budget figure will remain a mystery until then, but rest assured that the millage rate will remain at the constitutional maximum of 20 mills (unless a referendum is proposed to exceed that limit).

The schedule for the CCSD’s legally mandated budget hearings appears below (all of the hearings are scheduled from 6:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. and are open to the public):

25 May – Gaines Elementary School

27 May – Alps Road Elementary School

01 June – CCSD Administrative Office Board Room

For the record, the budget approved by the CCSD for FY 2010 was $122,263,068 (not including $5,608,920 in reserve and $750,000 in contingency funds, which served to bring the total budget amount up to $128,621,988). Typically, money is added to the budget throughout the fiscal year, so I am not sure as to the final budget amount for FY 2010. For what it is worth, the Georgia Department of Educations gave the amount of FY 2009 expenditures as $132,560,274.19.
