ISSUE 1 FAST FACTS:
WHAT W-E SCHOOLS STAND TO LOSE:
The District is required to have a balanced budget per State Law.
- If this renewal were to fail, the Board of Education would most likely place a renewal levy back on the November ballot, and create a list of cuts to staffing, student programming and district services to be implemented. If that November renewal levy were to fail, it would be necessary to account for a significant loss of funding and balance the budget. November would be the last opportunity to renew current funding before it would be lost.
- The W-E Board of Education (BOE) is required to make cuts to balance the budget in cases where funding is lost. While the BOE has not issued a list of cuts, if you recall, the previous list of cuts published in November came to $4.720M. Issue 1 is almost three times that amount - which means cuts would be significant if Issue 1 were to fail.
