BG Schools Renewals on May 5

2 Renewal Issues on May 5... The Facts
  • Two renewals will be on the ballot on May 5
  • These levies currently provide about $3.5 million, about 11.5% of our budget
  • Renewals = no new money
Why do we need to renew these issues?
  • These renewals are about protecting and preserving the excellence that is Bowling Green City Schools - they are not a new tax
  • These renewals fund day-to-day operations and sustain vital instruction and programs for students
  • These renewals will support financial stability for the next 5 years
What would happen if the renewals fail?
  • The loss of $3.5 million will devastate our schools and put our excellence at risk
  • The district would be forced to make deep cuts that will impact classrooms and programs for students
What has BG Schools done to reduce and manage cost?
  • Fiscally conservative approach = lean budget while supporting the classroom
  • Nearly $4 million in reductions without impacting instruction and programs
  • 0% salary increases and/or freezes in 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14
  • Staff contracts restructured = nearly $1 million in immediate savings while supporting long term sustainability
