Questions about rebuild and money spent

I had a parent and community council member ask about why a Trustland Budget would be needed if we don’t have a school next year? GREAT QUESTION! And one that I did not think to address, but I need to let all parents know about this. Thank you for asking Tayler! The answer is: we won’t have a physical school but we will have a Roosevelt Elementary. Meaning, we will be spread out but we will still function as Roosevelt. We will be dividing our funding based on the percentage of students at the host schools. We will still fund our programs, fund our Chromebooks, pay for our aides to assist in classrooms, and use the budget as needed to keep Roosevelt students up to speed. All staff will still be “Roosevelt Staff”, including myself and our secretaries, custodians, and teachers. The staff will still report to me, as their principal, we will just be assimilated into the host schools for the year. It will be quite a ride for a year!! Great question because this also pertains to our Title 1 funding and our TSSA budget.

Update on budget -13000 for Chromes

The $13,000 allocated for the Chromebook rental was paid out of Trustlands in October. This is the only budget item paid so far.

We will meet again as a council on January 16th at 3:30 pm! Hope you are all well and have a wonderful holiday season!
