804.21 Fiscal Management-Allowable Growth

The Board recognizes students have a wide range of instructional needs related to enrollment growth, social and economic circumstances, ability, and cultural diversity. Providing the best possible educational experience, meeting federal, state, and local academic goals, objectives, and standards for each student requires maximizing General Fund resources for use in the instructional program. Exercising this oversight responsibility, 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
  • Advance for increasing student enrollment
  • English language learners
  • At risk / dropout prevention programming
  • Opening new buildings for initial staffing
  • Any other lawful purpose


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