· Affect the individual classroom as little as possible
· Everyone will have a job – take care of employees
· Handle through attrition and reassignment
· Communicate throughout the process
Discussion occurred related to planned deficit budgets, budget options, and 4 cent enrichment tax.
C-5. Consideration, discussion and possible action related to advertizing on CSISD school busses
Director of Communications Chuck Glenewinkel discussed revenue generators for CSISD. Considerations are: no added overhead while creating a revenue source and also not to add too many – if any – additional duties to current staff. Advertising could occur on buses, website, and stadiums. Key points are: no district overhead, minimal additional duties to current staff, if we only do bus advertising there will be a 50/50 split of revenue generated; with a full advertising package, it would be a 60/40 split, and we would have final refusal on all ads. Examples and expectations of income were discussed.
C-6. Consideration, discussion and possible action related to legislative initiatives
Deputy Superintendent Clark Ealy led discussion related to unfunded mandates as they relate to the CSISD budget.
