Del Mar Union School District to hold Town Hall Budget Forum March 11

The Del Mar Union School District Board of Trustees will hold a Town Hall Budget Forum on March 11 from 6 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. at Del Mar Hills Academy, located at 14085 Mango Drive, Del Mar, 92014.

Selected participants from various stakeholder groups have been asked to take part in this Town Hall Budget Forum for the purpose of providing perspective to the governing board and superintendent on the proposed budget reductions for 2013/2014, specifically, budget solutions proposed by the superintendent on Feb. 27.

The Del Mar Union School District is currently operating with a structural deficit. In the 2011/2012 school year, the district deficit spent approximately $2.4 million and is on pace to deficit spend approximately $4.5 million for the current school year. The board of trustees and superintendent have been fully aware of the structural deficit, and reserves were purposefully utilized to maintain the district’s quality programs. However, the district cannot continue to deficit spend. If the district does not change course and reduce spending, it is on track to deficit spend approximately $4 million during the 2013/2014 school year. This spending would take the district well below the 15 percent reserve approved by the board of trustees.

Prior to this Town Hall Budget Forum, significant efforts have been made to communicate the district’s budget and potential solutions, including outreach to community organizations, informational meetings for school staffs and school communities.

This Town Hall Budget Forum is open to the public.
