Process and Timelines for FY2012 Budget and Possible Legislative Proposals

Members of the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education
Mitchell D. Chester, Ed.D., Commissioner
September 10, 2010


Attached are two documents that will assist with our discussion of the fiscal year 2012 budget timelines and process, and our initial discussion of the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education's fiscal year 2012 budget priorities and recommendation.

The first attachment details the timelines for the new fiscal year's budget as well as the Board's budget timelines to coincide with the Secretary of Education's budget recommendations and the Governor's fiscal year 2012 House 1.

The second document lists the Department's accounts in numerical order. The columns detail the fiscal years 2009 and 2010 appropriated amounts (post all 9C budget reductions), the fiscal year 2011 appropriated amounts, and the final FY2011 budget, along with a column showing the variance between this year's final budget and the previous year's (FY2010) budget.

We will review these attachments and the budget process at the September meeting. At the October meeting, the Board will have the opportunity to discuss specific budget proposals as well as possible legislative proposals.
