02/04/2009: "SJI SD Board Meeting Rescheduled"

The special board meeting scheduled for Wednesday, February 4th, has been rescheduled for Wednesday, March 4th, at 6:00 p.m. The School Board was scheduled to act upon financial planning recommendations at tomorrow night’s meeting, however, the Board will delay the meeting to honor faculty and staff requests for more time to understand the recommendations and the underlying financial projections.

Further, new analysis of revenue projections indicate that anticipated revenue declines will be somewhat less then the $826,000 predicted for 2009-10. Consequently further review of the analysis and program options will be considered.

Board Chairman, Boyd Pratt, and Superintendent Michael Soltman issued a joint statement saying, “Program restructuring decisions of this magnitude must be clearly understood and supported as much as possible by those who will be responsible for implementation. It is important that we all have a common understanding of the financial analysis as well as the program choices available. We believe that some additional time dedicated to this process will ensure well considered decisions that engender greater support.”

During February District administration and board members will continue to meet with the Financial Task Force and faculty and staff representatives to develop deeper understanding of the financial projections and available program options.
