Budgets and Buildings

 SUPERINTENDENT’S MESSAGE
Budgets and Buildings

Your school district is embarking on two VERY important processes: planning for the 2016-2017 operational budget and asking for taxpayer support to improve the buildings we use to conduct our work. It is absolutely critical that all GFPS employees have the facts of both matters so you can discuss them with your friends and neighbors. I will be presenting information about both topics at several upcoming meetings. PLEASE make the time to attend.

SCHOOL BOARD MEETING
The Board will be taking action on the Facility Plan and the related costs to be put forth to the community for a vote in October. Public comment will be taken.
Today, Monday, February 22, 2016, 5:30 pm, DOB, Aspen Conference Room

COMMUNITY BUDGET MEETINGS
These are budget specific meetings with community members present. Come help your Board members plan for next year’s general fund budget revenues and expenditures.

STAFF FACILITY MEETINGS
These meetings are just for GFPS staff members. The bulk of the agenda will be about the Facility Plan and the related costs to be put before the voters in October. There will be however, some discussion about the 2016-2017 budget as well. I will present roughly the same information at each meeting. There will be time set aside to ask questions as well.
Tuesday, March 1, 4:00-5:00, CMR Auditorium
Thursday, March 3, 4:00-5:00, GFHS Auditorium

When dealing with complicated processes, it is often the case for misinformation to be spread. This is your opportunity to get the facts. I look forward to sharing them with you.

Take care. Be safe. Stay well.
