Without funding, $5 million would need to be cut in the 2023-24 school year, resulting in:
- Insufficient safety and security resources
- Increased class sizes
- Fewer opportunities for individualized learning
- Diminished academic support
- Reduction in electives and opportunities at all levels
- Outdated and unreliable technology tools, systems and spaces
- Fewer technology support staff for families and employees
- Limited support services for scholars, including mental health
These impacts wouldn’t allow schools to provide the educational experience families have asked for as outlined in the new strategic plan.
Without funding in the 2024-25 school year, $49 million would need to be cut. Results would be similar to those listed above, but at higher levels. At least 450 staff members would be cut as well as safety/security resources and technology tools, systems and spaces.
