School district budget study session and public hearing is Thursday, Aug. 8

August 7th, 2013 at Wed, 7th, 2013 at 12:47 pm by Kipp Robertson

The public is invited to attend a study session on the 2013-14 budget for the North Kitsap School District.

The meeting begins at 6 p.m. in the administrative building, 18360 Caldart Ave. NE., Poulsbo.

The study session will be about one hour, where board members will discuss the proposed budget. There will be no public comment during the session.

Following their discussion, the board will listen to public comment. The comment period is expected to begin at 7 p.m.

If approved, the 2013-14 budget includes about $63.9 million in expenditures. The district expects to receive about $64.2 million in revenue. The district recently received nearly $2 million in added revenue from the state, which, among the bonuses, allowed staff that received pink slips to be rehired.

The 2013-14 budget will be adopted Aug. 22 during the regular board meeting.

The board will also hear comment on management items, which includes a policy on community involvement and a discussion on allowing students to register for more than six periods of classes (also known as zero period, or seventh period).

The board will recess into executive session for about one hour before adjourning the meeting.
