4) Board Budget Update from February 4, 2013
Second quarter report: Vice Chancellor of Business Services Kevin McElroy reported that the district is projecting that enrollment could be down 700 full-time-student equivalents (FTES) for the 2012-13 fiscal year. Efforts are being made to recoup enrollment in spring and summer, but if the projected decline holds, it would result in a reduction in the district’s base funding estimated at $3.2 million for 2013-14. He said there is good news in that the state may not impose a deficit factor that the district had budgeted in the current year, which would bring about $2 million to the district’s bottom line, and an increase in non-resident enrollment could result in up to $1 million in new revenue. Expenses are holding steady for the year, he said, but could increase by as much as $2 million next year unless further adjustments to spending are made. Based on current assumptions, the district is projecting a budget deficit for 2013-14 of $3 million to $5 million.
