File Attachment:
Memo for SPL and Music Changes.pdf
Summary: We propose making budget neutral changes to two teaching positions. First, we recommend reducing the RMS/C music teaching position to .5 FTE. Second, we recommend increasing an unfilled district-wide .6 FTE speech and language pathologist position to 1.0 FTE.
Budgetary Impact: We anticipate that the position changes will be budget neutral for 2020-21. In 2021-22, there will be additional costs, but we expect that the additional revenue from new students who need speech services will cover the additional expense.
