LEWISBORO, N.Y. -- The Katonah-Lewisboro School District Board of Education will meet for a special study session on Thursday, Nov. 21 at 7 p.m. in the John Jay High School cafeteria to discuss the district's five-year expenditure forecast, the demographic study and update on school closures.
Assistant Superintendent for Business Michael Jumper will present the FACE (Finance Advisory Committee Expenditure) forecast report at the Board of Education meeting. This report will explain the district's predicted expenditures over the next four years and will also compare them to the anticipated revenues.
While the report is a projection of expenditures and is not a budget forecast, it is intended to assist the Board of Education, the Administration, and the public in developing the budget for the 2014-15 school year. Mr. Jumper's presentation will review the district's prior spending and its current budget in addition to explaining the future forecast.
The Board will also discuss declining enrollment in the district and demographic characteristics. A PowerPoint presentation will be given on the topic by Statistical Forecasting, LLC.
That presentation will be followed by an update from the School Closure Task Force.
After the three discussions and presentations, the meeting will be opened to a public forum.
John Jay High School is located at 60 North Salem Road in Cross River.
