Video: May 5th Finance and Facilities meetings

On Wednesday night, May 5th, the Finance and Facilities committees held back-to-back meetings. Finance discussed the current budget and looked ahead to 2021-22.

The Facilities discussion included a facility assessment and conceptual planning for Quakertown Elementary School and a baseball field feasibility study. These two potential costs, along with the change of School Start Times and the possibility of full-day kindergarten, would impact future budgets.
For QE, here's the recommendation to the School Board from the Elementary Redistricting Committee, along with a redistricting capacity breakdown and a comparative financial analysis of Palisades and Quakertown,.
Regarding full-day kindergarten, here are the projected sections for 2021-22 and potential additional costs.
A declining student population is not strictly a Quakertown issue. Here's a Wall Street Journal story and an opinion piece in The Washington Post that explain the issue.
