Budget Topic of Nov. 11 Board Workshop

The West Des Moines Community Schools Board of Education will hold a workshop and regular meeting at the time and date noted below. These meetings are open to the public.

During the workshop, Interim Superintendent Dr. Lisa Remy and CFO Paul Bobek will:

  • Present the preliminary estimated dollar amount the district will need to reduce from next year’s budget. Last year, district budget projections indicated that expenses would be greater than income in future years, unless costs are reduced.
  • Review the process that will be used to make decisions regarding budget cuts for the 2014-15 school year. Currently, administration is on step two of the process – called Tregoe.

At the regular meeting, the Board will review a financial dashboard for the district produced by the Iowa Association of School Boards. Kids West fees and a resolution fixing the date and sale of school infrastructure sales, service and use tax revenue bonds will also be addressed.
