school district budget

Alameda school district administrators painted a grim picture of the district’s finances over the next few years, though school board trustees questioned whether constant changes in state funding and policies make it impossible to offer a true picture of the district’s financial future.

Budget projections Chief Business Officer Robert Shemwell offered the Board of Education on Tuesday night showed the district would use up its $8.6 million in reserves over the next three years and would need to make $1.8 million in cuts before the 2013-2014 school year. The three-year budget projections are mandated by state law.
