BOARD AGENDA FACT SHEET

 

MEETING DATE:       02-11-04                                 DATE PREPARED: 02-04-04

 

AGENDA ITEM:         #14                              AGENDA TITLE: Lane ESD Resolutions

 

ITEM PREPARED BY: Stuber                                    ITEM REQUESTED BY: Lane ESD

 

SUMMARY: Each year the ESD prepares a budget in conjunction with county

superintendents relative to spending “resolution dollars” available to the

ESD for expenditure within the county school system.  This portion of their

budget then is proposed for approval by the individual school boards within

the county.  The recommendations are presented as resolutions for each

district’s vote and subsequent submission to the Lane ESD Board of

Directors.  A description of each service category and the proposed funding

for each is attached.

 

SUPERINTENDENT'S ADVICE: The ESD faces a funding stream problem.  Not all

services are now completely paid by ESD coffers.  A decision was made

earlier this year that since there wasn’t enough money to go around, that

some services would remain fully funded by the ESD.  The balance of the

funding then was prorated by student populations and set aside for each

district to use as a “flex bank” to spend in categories they wanted.  There

is not enough money in our bank to support all the needs we have.  Where

there is a shortage of funds in the bank, the District must pick up the

remaining costs and for us those costs will primarily be borne from our IDEA

or Special Education funds.  Spending our IDEA monies further erodes our

ability to provide the services we are required to provide, ergo money could

be needed from the General Fund.  What appears to be a vicious cycle, is, in

fact, a vicious cycle.  That being said however, the proposed resolution

package is the most plausible means for the Creswell School District to

continue its mission for educating our special needs population.

AGENDA ITEM:         #18                              AGENDA TITLE: Old District Office

 

ITEM PREPARED BY: Stuber                                    ITEM REQUESTED BY: Chair

 

SUMMARY: The district has received an inquiry regarding the possible sale of

the old District Office building on 2nd Street.  While there has been much

discussion at different levels on the possible disposal or further use for

the building, there has been no official determination.

 

SUPERINTENDENT'S ADVICE: Right now the facility serves as a storage

repository.  While the roof does not leak and it is not the host of frequent

break-ins, storage is an option.

            There has been a request to rent the facility.  As landlords however we

have a responsibility to maintain, insure, and possibly upgrade the

building.

            One common thought in different facility meetings was to sell the building

and I believe an estimate was obtained.  My recommendation is to select a

realtor and put it on the market.  Any offers for the property could come

before the board for approval.
