Reed district plans to plug funding shortfall in arts, music in $26 mil budget
The Reed Union School District is projecting a slight budget surplus in fiscal 2021-2022, even as it plans to spend an extra $500,000 to ensure the district’s art, music and library programs — typically bankrolled by the Foundation for Reed Schools — can be fully funded in the coming year.
The district’s board of trustees at its June 1 meeting reviewed a draft $26.14-million budget that shows about $26.19-million in revenue, for a slight surplus of about $47,100. The board was expected to conduct a second review and approve the budget at its June 8 meeting, held after The Ark’s press deadline and ahead of the new fiscal year, which begins July 1.
