Moline School District No. 40 to host public input session on 2013-14 budget

Facing a projected $3.8 million deficit in the Education Fund, Moline School District No. 40 officials will host a public input session on Tuesday, February 12, at the Moline Public Library at 6:30 p.m.
Because Board members are expected to observe and listen, the event is posted as a public meeting. However, no action will be taken, and the budget discussion will be the only item on the evening's agenda.
District administration will present a five-year projected financial outlook and explain the recent history of budget reduction measures taken by the Board. Following that, the public will have a chance to register their opinions with the administration for consideration prior to recommending budget options to the Board.
In March, the Board will act on any reductions to certified staff. In April, administration will present the Board with options and scenarios for additional budget reduction measures.
