The best-case and worse-case scenarios for balancing Rochester Community Schools' 2013-14 budget will be outlined for the community Monday night.
Dan Romzek, Assistant Superintendent for Business for the school district, will kick off a four-month-long budgeting process during the Board of Education meeting, which begins at 7 p.m. at the School Administration Building.
The meeting is open to the public, and public comments on the school budget or any school-related topic are welcome.
A copy of Romzek's presentation can be downloaded here. For 2013-14, the district is facing a $3.3 million deficit. Key to balancing the budget will be board members' direction to Romzek and other school administrators about how far to dip into the district's fund balance to make up for the deficit. At the end of the 2012-13 school year, the fund balance will be $17.2 million.
Rochester Patch will cover the board meeting; check back later this week for a full report on the budget projections.
Also on the Monday night meeting agenda is the approval of a bid to Security Designs Inc. for $27,080 to install video intercom door security systems at 19 buildings in the district. The project is part of an overhaul of security measures at the school buildings this year.
