804.21 Fiscal Management – Allowable Growth

Providing the best possible educational experience for all students and meeting federal, state, and local academic goals for each student requires maximizing General Fund resources for use in the instructional program. The board shall request from the School Budget Review Committee (SBRC) additional allowable growth where it may be available for items such as:

  • Special education deficit balances
  • Advances to support increasing student enrollment
  • Supports for students identified as English Learners
  • At risk / dropout prevention programming
  • Initial staffing associated with opening new buildings or programs
  • Any other lawful purpose

Any award of allowable growth will be levied as a cash reserve based on the recommendation of the superintendent/designee and approved by the Board of Education in keeping with the fiscal management performance measures provided for in district policy.
