No staff will be cut under new school budget

 By Dick Mason

COVE — The Cove School Board voted Tuesday to adopt a 2012-13 budget which calls for the district to spend $205,000 less than it did in the past school year but not cut any staff.

 The board adopted a budget of $3.842 million for 2012-13, down from its present year budget of $4.047 million. The budget calls for no personnel or program reductions, according to information provided at a budget hearing prior to the

The primary reason the district’s  total budget will be down is that it will receive less federal funding in 2012-13. It will not receive  stimulus money from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act or funds from a charter school grant, which it did in the past school year.  

The federal stimulus money is being cut because the ARRA program is ending. The school district will not receive a charter school grant in 2012-13 because it will be in its fourth year as 

a charter district. Charter districts are eligible for certain grants during their first three years. Cove received a $225,000 charter grant in 2011-12.

 Charter school districts are publicly funded districts in the United States that have been freed of some state and federal rules and regulations that apply to other public schools. They are eligible for grants in their early years, which can be used to start new programs. Charter grants can not be used to cover personnel expenses.

The budget adopted by the Cove School Board calls for some cuts in spending for items such as supplies. No money will be drawn from the district’s contingency fund to balance its budget.

In other action items, the school board voted to hire Bruce Neil as its next superintendent. Neil is currently the principal of Central Middle School in the Milton-Freewater School District. The board’s action was a formality. It announced on June 1 that Neil had been selected as the district’s next superintendent.

Neil will succeed Jeff Clark, who is stepping down after nine years as Cove superintendent to take a position as  superintendent of the Amity School District in Yamhill County.
