Survey will gather community’s input for 2019-20 budget reductions
Vancouver Public Schools has a projected budget shortfall next year that will necessitate reductions in staff and support. The overall deficit has been lessened thanks to a one-time addition of $6.5 million from the recently released state’s consensus budget. At this point, the district is anticipating an $8 million shortfall.
The district is asking for input from district families, staff and community members to prioritize the reductions. Participants will be asked to suggest preliminary/recommended reductions from a potential list identified over the past three months.
