SUSD Governing Board approves 2020-21 expenditure budget

Posted

The Governing Board of the Scottsdale Unified School District unanimously approved a $372.7 million expenditure budget for the fiscal year that begins July 1.

The Governing Board took the vote on June 23 at the Board’s regular monthly meeting. The budget includes $174.1 million for Maintenance and Operations, $25.3 million for Capital expenses, $42.4 million in Bond spending, $19.6 million in state and federal grants and $111.2 million in other funds.

Under the M&O budget, SUSD taxpayers will see their combined primary and secondary tax rate decrease by about 3%, the fourth consecutive year with a reduction, according to a press release.

Highlights of next year’s M&O budget, the majority of the District’s spending, include:

  • A 5% pay increase for all SUSD employees;
  • 69%, or $120.2 million, dedicated to SUSD students, teachers and classrooms;
  • The creation of 10 new positions for social workers and guidance counselors to help support the social and emotional learning needs of students in grades 6–12;
  • No increases in medical insurance premiums for SUSD employees; and
  • Contingency funding for a demographically predicted loss of student enrollment.
