The Budget Reduction Committee identified more than $5.8 million in cuts, cost avoidance or revenue enhancements. The recommendations were classified into three tiers, with Tier 1 suggested for implementation during the 2011-2012 school year. Tier 1 includes recommended cuts of $1,244,134 and a potential of $1,598,069 from a suggested tax levy increase.

Budget Reduction - Early Fall 2010
As the district enters the 2010-2011 school year, there continues to be a tightening of the budget. The Ray-Pec School District has eliminated or left unfilled more than 66 positions district-wide. To see a summary of those positions, go to:

State budget cuts have continued, with the district receiving notification in June of additional cuts to transportation and other funds. In addition, the preliminary assessed valuation in the school district shows a decline from the previous year. More cuts to the Ray-Pec School District budget will be necessary.

As the district plans for 2011-2012 and beyond, it is beginning a budget reduction process that will include the participation of employees, parents and community members.
