Trustees Approved 2021-2022 Final Budget
A final budget is required to be submitted to the Nevada Department of Taxation each June for the following fiscal year beginning on July 1. The final budget was presented with minimal changes to what was previously presented to the board on April 8, 2021 meeting. The changes include a net increase of $26 million dollars based on new tax revenue projections.
CCSD CFO Jason Goudie shared that there still remain uncertainties within the budget as the legislature continues to work on the funding model for the new Pupil Centered Funding Formula. The final budget can be amended through December 9, 2021, to include real figures based on enrollment and the implementation of the Pupil Centered Funding Plan.
