Considering the difficult economic and financial circumstances in which we find our state, we are making an unprecedented effort to involve our community and employees in our budget process. Below is some information on Granite District’s budgets and specifically which areas could be impacted. The feedback you provide will help the administration and board make these difficult decisions for our next fiscal year. We hope that after viewing the budget information, you will be able to provide responses to the following four questions listed on the feedback form:
1. What district programs and services do you view as critical and oppose reducing if that reduction would change the quality and level of service?
2. What district programs and services do you view as important, but would support reducing in some manner given the fiscal environment?
3. What district programs and services do you view as non-essential and are willing to do without?
4. What specific suggestions do you have for developing the FY 2011 budget?
We have provided a comprehensive spreadsheet of information on programs and services that are funded with unrestricted revenues. Please review the video presentation and, utilizing the feedback form, provide your suggestions and input.
Employees will have an opportunity to provide feedback through their community council represenative or through their respective association. Patron feedback forms should be funneled through the PTA organization or your school’s community council or principal. All responses and suggestions should be sent with a signature of the community council chair and principal from each school. Principals should return the forms in person, via email or district mail to the Superintendent’s Office by Thursday, April 1. Feel free to make additional copies of the feedback form as necessary.
Thank you for your time and commitment to the students of Granite School District.
