  1. XVI. Presentation of FY2013 Q2 Expenditure Report

Mr. Moya presented the FY2013 Quarter 2 Report for all funds—the metric changes each quarter.  The Q2 YTD areas in red (% of budget expended) have an explanation off to the side.  Instructional Materials is one of the categories in red—ordered in the September rather than in spring—timing issue.  Discovery Ed materials are encumbered and expenditures will hit in Q3.  The Combined Local/State Grants category (primarily afterschool programs)—figures will be less than anticipated in the 2nd quarter every year—will be back on track for the 3rd quarter.

  1. XVII. Presentation of FY14 Strategic Budget Look Ahead

Mr. Moya began discussion by saying the following about the FY14 Budget presentation:

  • Based on where the Legislation is on appropriations—HB2 did pass the House of Representatives and is on its way to the Senate.  Mr. Moya and Mr. Hendrickson prepared estimates of what it means for the Albuquerque Public Schools based on HB2 as it moves forward—with respect to revenue and expenditures.
  • Mr. Hendrickson reviewed high-level assumptions and updates.  Hopefully more clarity will be given over the next two to three weeks as decisions are being made in Santa Fe.
  • Mr. Hendrickson brought to the committee’s attention the document, which reflects the recommended appropriations evolution as it goes from the Executive recommendation to the LFC recommendation to the latest proposal approved by the House Appropriations Finance Committee.  The 3.8% increase in revenue represents a $22.4M positive impact—once student enrollment decrease is factored in, it becomes a net revenue increase of $20M.
  • Expenditure increases tied to new legislative mandates:  two major ERB contribution increases—1.5% increase reversal--.75% represents a true increase—totals $9M to district.
  • No provision for PTR waivers being extended into next fiscal year—impact is a need for approximately 100-120 additional teachers.  Also there is an embedded 1% increase to all employees.
  • Existing budget shortfall of $5.2M in FY13 will be softened with the IDEA-B operational credit for early intervention programs.
  • Big increases to medical plan due to health care reform impacts as well as increases to medical costs—setting aside $4.2M for increases next year.
  • Utilities continue to increase—especially electricity—approximately $1.3M—represents a 4-5% increase overall.
  • Positive side to enrollment drop is spending is reduced–need for fewer teachers—reduction of $1.2M.
  • Mr. Moya discussed that once HB3 moved from House Education Committee to House Appropriations and Finance--$43.5M, which was above the line went back below the line.  If this money would have stayed above the line, that would have meant another $11.7M to the Albuquerque Public Schools.  The incremental increases and fixed costs continue to outstrip incremental increases in revenue.
  • School districts and state education agencies need to make maintenance of effort—done in two different ways.  A state makes maintenance of effort by looking at the amount of money made available to serve students with disabilities—amount of money generated through the funding formula by students with disabilities.  Districts make maintenance of effort by the amount of money spent on students with disabilities.
  • Mr. Hendrickson discussed not being ready to build a budget—settling out assumptions by March 8—internal budget templates will be built for schools so that funds can be allocated.
  • PTR-7% away from own internal standard in terms of how we staff
  • According to PED views, reports show we are off by 2-3%
  • Ms. Scott discussed that 10% was held back at the beginning of this year for sequestration—do not know the dollar impact for FY14.
  • Mr. Moya discussed that Impact Aid cuts would happen immediately for this year in regard to sequestration.
  • Mr. Moya has concerns using cash for recurring expenditures.
  • Mr. Brooks discussed Potential Discretionary Increases and Requests are a result of the Board’s discussions.

 

  1. XVIII. Adjournment

Dr. Peercy (Mr. Esquivel left at 8:26) adjourned the Finance Committee meeting at 8:40 a.m.  The next Finance Committee meeting will be held on Monday, March 18, 2013, at 7:30 a.m., in the DeLayo-Martin Community Room.
