In preparing the Rochester School District 2023-2024 budget, we need to plan for approximately $1,000,000 less revenue than during the 2022-2023 school year. This reduction is due to the expiration of Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funds. To different degrees, all schools in the state received one-time ESSER funds to provide additional resources to students during the COIVD-19 pandemic. The funding was one-time and temporary. To work within current state funding, RSD needs to reduce budget expenditures by $1,000,000 for 2023-2024 school year and may need to make a similar reduction for the 2024-2025 school year. The reductions in the 2024-2025 school year will be pending RSD student enrollment and future state education funding.
A committee comprised of parents, community members, district employees, and board members will meet beginning in February to develop budget reduction recommendations for the Board of Directors consideration.
