    THE BUZZ
     
    Saint Paul Public Schools is in a similar situation facing many Minnesota school districts this year: we are projecting a $15 million budget shortfall for the 2016-17 school year.

    The initial budget projection is due to a variety of reasons and is subject to change. Impacting factors include enrollment fluctuations, the number of students qualifying for free/reduced meals, contractual commitments and the fact that State funding has not kept up with inflation during the past 20 years. 

    The Board of Education will adopt the final budget during the June 21 Board of Education meeting.

    SPPS is committed to an inclusive and transparent budget process which includes staff, family and community engagement. In April, SPPS will host community information sessions. Interpreters and childcare will be available.
    • Thursday, April 14, 6-7:30 p.m.
    • Saturday, April 16, 10-11:30 a.m.
