Speaker:
Frank Jerome
Rationale:
In accordance with Education Code 42127, school districts shall hold a public hearing on the budget to be adopted for the subsequent year.   
In addition, districts shall provide the following information for public review and discussion: 
(i)  The minimum recommended reserve for economic uncertainties for each fiscal year identified in the budget. 

(ii)  The combined assigned and unassigned ending fund balances that are in excess of the minimum recommended reserve for economic uncertainties for each fiscal year identified in the budget. 

(iii) A statement of reasons that substantiates the need for an assigned and unassigned ending fund balance that is in excess of the minimum recommended reserve for economic uncertainties for each fiscal year that the school district identifies an assigned and unassigned ending fund balance that is in excess of the minimum recommended reserve for economic uncertainties, as identified pursuant to clause (ii). 

The proposed budget was made available for public inspection beginning Wednesday June 12, 2019. 

The proposed budget summarizes the financial activity for Ripon Unified School District, which is built on the best available information the District has received to date.  Further, the proposed budget is only an initial blueprint for revenues and expenditures since the preparation of the proposed budget occurs before the State has enacted its budget, and before actual expenditures are known for the current year.  The proposed budget will be presented to the Board of Trustees for approval on June 24, 2019.
