    Dear Parents:

     

    HISD will be experiencing budget cuts next year. Some of the cuts will be due  the state school finance system and its impact on the district. There are also proposals currently before the School Board  to require certain essential staff at all schools which will also affect school budgets as well as provide additional staff to schools.  I do expect the Board to take action this week that will have an impact on our budget for next year. The full impact of that action and the other cuts due to the state finance system is unknown as I write this.  By next week, I will have a clearer picture of the expected cuts to our budget.  Please plan to attend our PTA meeting next week on Wednesday  when I will share  the most up to date information that I have as well as give you a quick tutorial on how schools are funded in Texas and HISD.

     

    Don’t forget that we have our last Early Dismissal of the year on February 24th at 12:30 followed by our Black History Program on the 25th at 6:00. The 5th grade Valentine’s Day fundraiser is this week!

     

    Have a great week!
    John Baker

     

     

    Estimados padres,

     
    HISD va a sufrir recortes presupuestarios el próximo año. Algunos de estos recortes se deben al Sistema de financiación estatal de las escuelas y su impacto en el distrito. Así mismo, en este momento, hay una serie de propuestas presentadas a la mesa directiva del distrito para que todas las escuelas tengan cierto personal esencial, lo que también va a afectar a nuestro presupuesto el año próximo. Espero que la mesa directiva tome una decisión esta semana que va a afectar nuestro presupuesto para el próximo año. El efecto total de esa decisión y de los otros recortes debido al Sistema de finanzas estatal es incierto al escribir esto. La próxima semana tendré una visión más clara de los recortes que sufrirá nuestro presupuesto. Por favor, hagan planes de asistir a nuestra junta del PTA el miércoles de la próxima semana donde compartiré la información mas actualizada que tenga así como les daré una pequeña explicación de como se proporcionan los fondos a las escuelas en Texas y en el HISD.
     

    No se olviden que tenemos nuestro ultimo día de salida temprano el 24 de febrero a las 12:30, seguido de nuestro programa de la historia afro-americana el día 25 a las 6:00. ¡La campaña de recogida de fondos de 5º grade de San Valentín es esta semana!

     

    ¡Tengan una gran semana!
    John Baker
