GPS – School Board Mtg – Jun 14, 2011 @ 7pm, District Offices located at 140 S. Gilbert Rd., Gilbert (SW corner of Elliott and Gilbert Rd, around the back)
GPS school board members will be presented with a final budget for 2011-2012 school year to approve. The details are often hard to decipher, but the totals aren’t. The grand total cost for GPS district school education is a whopping $301 Million +. The total amount of the budget, subject to budget limits $208,168,991. This is the amount provided through state funds and the FY11 legislative sessions. But don’t forget there are other sources of revenue that are often left out. Check out the board packet for more details on how these funds are broken down. Where does the extra $93.5 Million come from? Look inside and see if you can figure it out. If you can find a document that shows where $93.5 Million is coming from we have a gift for you.
Teen Dating Abuse – A new law (SB1308) requires school districts to address teen dating abuse concerns. Come see a presentation for how the district may deal with this issue and how this will be incorporated into the curriculum. Parents of teens may find this issue of particular interest.
