NSCSD superintendent asks for community input to address budget deficit

— All information provided during the March 19 Board of Education meeting is available for download at nscsd.org/budget, a special website established in an effort to keep the community informed during the entire budget process.

Dyce said she is interested in what the community believes the tax increase should look like.

“[We are] just really very much interested in what the community thinks, what the community will accept as a potential number,” she said.

Video of the board meeting, which includes Keegan’s presentation, has also been archived on the district’s website.

The district has created a survey regarding the 2012-13 budget deficit, potential cuts and the tax levy and is asking for the community’s feedback prior to Friday March 30 so results can be used in the budget development process.

“We want to hear from the community as to what individuals believe the tax increase should look like,” Dyce said. “We are asking people what they will accept as a potential increase in order to maintain programs in the district.”

The survey is available online at surveymonkey.com/s/9N2C3BL.

In the next month, the district and board will deliberate to adopt and present a fiscally responsible budget to the community. The community will have the opportunity to vote on the district’s proposed budget on Tuesday May 15.
