Proposed Budget Reductions for 2013-2014 and the Proposed Five-Year Budget Reduction Recommendations
Budget reductions have been needed in the Davenport Community Schools since the 2001-2002 school year, only in 2005-2006 did the district not have to make budget reductions.
The Resource Allocation Committee (RAC)
The RAC’s goal was to identify $3.25 million in reductions each year for the next five years. Below is the recommendation of the RAC for the 2013-2014 school year. The RAC also was charged with identifying $3.25 million in reductions each year for the next five years. The five-year proposal for budget reductions is also offered below for review. Last year the Davenport Community Schools hosted a series of public forums to offer interested parents and community members opportunities to ask questions and offer feedback on the proposed budget reductions. Beginning in January 2013, we will host six public forums at various schools throughout the district to discuss both the proposed budget reductions and proposed boundary changes:
