Appendix I

Subject: Austerity Cuts Restored
Go Team Members / Instructional Leadership Team Members / Better Seeking Team Members
I wanted to share some additional information with each of you regarding my recommendations for the use of the restored Austerity Cuts.
Our Austerity Cuts for SY17-18 were:  $46,827
I have proposed that one of the three positions that I had to cut be restored, but used in a different capacity.  I have submitted a request to use the funds in the following way:

  • $39,497 – Instructional Para (Restored Position)

  • $3,500 – Student Admission (Rock Eagle Trip – 5th Grade Students)

  • $3,830 – Instructional Materials and Supplies

The restored para position would be used in the Computer Lab to support student access to technology and upkeep of the computer lab.  They would work under the direction of the classroom teacher to support students with Extended/Constructed Response Writing; Use of IXL; Administration of STAR Reading/Math and general 21st Century Technology Skills.

The funds allocated for Student Admission would be supplement the already allocated funds for Student Admission and Transportation to allow for up to 90 5th Grade students to participate in an overnight Extended Learning Experience (Rock Eagle) -  Having the funds available for the students would ensure that ALL 5th grade students are able to attend and eliminate any financial hardship for families.
If you have any questions about the use of these funds, or would like any additional information on the original budget proposal, please respond to this email.  GoTeam Members will need to vote on the use of these Austerity Funds (Restored) at our next GoTeam meeting so that out budget can be finalized.
