2 Decreasing enrollment trend. Decrease in State, Local, and Federal funding. Increasing operation costs. Sustaining the Construction/Lottery Fund. The necessity to increase program offerings cost effectively. The necessity to strengthen the curriculum while utilizing staff more effectively.
3 Enrollment Enrollment
4 In the previous slide, the enrollment has declined. Even though there has been a small increase in enrollment in 2013 (884) from 2012 (870), the projected enrollment of 2014 (890) does not represent a significant enrollment recovery.
5 As a small school division, the loss of student enrollment from 2009 to the projected enrollment of 2014 of approximately 40 students is a significant decline of approximately 5%.
6 The necessity to reduce staffing in accordance with the Standards of Quality guidelines. Reducing operating costs diverts funding to the increasing liability of the school division to mandated salary and benefit requirements. The proposed configuration would provide a more financially sustainable format while enhancing the instructional program.
7 The economic down-turn of the economy has impacted all revenue streams for public education.
8 From school year to school year, state funding has decreased as depicted in the following chart: School Year State Funding Local Funding $4,913,181 $2,253, $4,067,554 $1,850,941 Total lost State and Local Funding for Bland County Public Schools: $1,248,600
9 Local funding is influenced by the decline of enrollment. There has been an increased burden on the Bland County Board of Supervisors to fund schools with the increase in the Composite Index.
10 Bland County Board of Supervisors has evidenced their continuing commitment to the Bland County School Board by consistently providing funding in excess of what is mandated by the state. However, it is important to note that the Board of Supervisors is also being impacted by the down turn in the economy and is unable to secure the additional funding needed to bridge the School Board s budget shortfall.
11 It is important to note that Federal funding for Title I, Title II, Part A, and Special Education has decreased approximately 5%. It is unclear what effects the Federal sequestration will have on these programs.
12 The Federal government provided funds to assist public education as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) in Those funds assisted school divisions for a period of time during this economic recession. The ARRA Funds were depleted in the fall of 2012.
13 The school division must continue to purchase goods and services at increasing costs. Examples of these increasing costs include: Increased cost of gas and diesel fuels; Increased cost of electricity, coal, and other utilities; Increased cost of health insurance and required employer contribution; and Increased cost of instructional materials.
14 Mandates from the Virginia Department of Education and the Legislature of the Commonwealth of Virginia have resulted in increased costs that are unfunded. These include the following:
15 Mandated courses to be included as part of graduation requirements. Mandated contract development with the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) to offer a General Education Certificate and/or an Associates Degree as part of the high school curriculum. Mandated implementation of an Academic and Career Plan to students that encourages students to participate in one of the 16 Vocational Technology Career Clusters.
16 Mandate to provide an increase in compensation to employees of school division to offset the employee s requirement to contribute 5% of their retirement benefit to the Virginia Retirement System (VRS) within a 5 year period. News from legislators indicate that there will be a contribution increase of employers to the VRS at the rate of 2% per year for the next 3 years for a total increase of 6%. A proposed VRS Hybrid plan will further increase the employers contribution in January 2014.
17 State statute permits school divisions to utilize construction/lottery funds to offset budget deficits. The graph on the following slide demonstrates the use of these funds to the present time and a projected date of depletion.
18 Budget Year Beginning Balance Transfer $2,475, $35, $2,439, $300, $2,139, $688, $1,450, $725, $725, $775, $0 The transfer of funds for and are conservative estimates.
19 Since October of 2010 every effort has been made to reduce operating costs while considering the projected decrease in state and federal funding. In light of these efforts Bland County Public Schools has continued to achieve recognition for academic excellence while reducing operational costs by approximately $304,
20 Utilize the existing campuses to the following configuration: Combine schools for a PK-6 grade configuration on one campus. Combine the schools to form a 7-12 grade configuration on the other campus. Both campuses are viable locations for either one of these configurations.
21 Utilize the Reduction in Force policy while examining teacher credentials to assign teachers to fulfill the educational programs of the proposed configuration. Proposed efficiency in regard to the overall instructional program and possible cost savings projection.

50 Instructional materials are allocated based upon enrollment. Expenditures in this area are closely monitored. There is no plan to cut the provision of instructional materials for students. It is proposed that academic and athletic programs will continue to receive limited funding to continue to operate these worthwhile programs.
51 Proposed Administrative and Support Staff Cost Savings: $88, Proposed Extra-Duty Cost Savings: $15, Proposed Staff Configuration Cost Savings: $467, Total Proposed Savings $571,230.73
52 Transportation: Approximately $55, increase for fuel. Facility Upgrades: $40,000.00
53 Proposed operational cost savings: $571, Proposed cost of consolidation: $95, Proposed net savings of consolidation: $476,230.73
54 Budget Shortfall $688, Approximate Impact on Construction Lottery Fund if Schools are Consolidated $212, Proposed Net Savings of Consolidation $476, Approximate Impact on Construction Lottery Fund without Consolidation $688,915.00
55 Maintain what we already have while strengthening the instructional program. Offer more dual enrollment credit classes. Provide more opportunities for all students. Enhance the K-12 scholastic experience by a middle level format which would assist in the transition from elementary school to high school with increased program offerings at no additional operating cost.
56 Use of the Instructional Technology Resource Teacher more effectively. Limited traveling by itinerant personnel. Special Education case loads will be streamlined. Decrease of teacher course preparations.
57 Consistent course offerings to all students. Local History, Photojournalism, Sociology, Precalculus, and SAT Prep/Creative Writing for all high school students. The addition of Reading Intervention and Dual Enrollment Calculus as a high school elective choice. The addition of Drama and Choir as high school elective choices for all students.
58 This would provide common planning for elementary teachers; Streamlined Speech services at the elementary school; Coordination of Gifted Program delivery; Daily Physical Education for all K-6 students; Embedded instructional intervention time for PK-9 students; and Increased access to specialty classes for Pre-K students.
59 This would strengthen instructional departments across the curriculum; increased advantage for all students of the instructional strengths of teachers; Provides more efficient and prescriptive intervention on a daily basis; and Provide more targeted, efficient professional development.
60 Provide a sustainable opportunity for acceleration for students across the academic core; Provide more opportunity for face-to-face instruction of Dual Enrollment credit courses; and Provide extra-curricular opportunities for students at a lower operating cost for the same services.
