The Peekskill City School District is looking for people to serve on a financial task force to begin preparing for the 2012-2013 school budget and beyond. Read below for more information from the school district on the task force:
In preparation for the formulation of the 2012-2013 schools budget, the Peekskill City School District is seeking volunteers to serve on a financial task force. The task force is charged by the Board of Education with formulating a Five-Year Financial Forecasting Plan. The goal is to complete the plan by December 2011.
The objectives of the task force include building a transparent budget, projecting expenses, analyzing contracts, analyzing state aid and local resources, and projecting various budget scenarios based on program and operational priorities. The task force will make recommendations to the Board of Education. A minimum of one to two meetings per month, with some work between meetings, will be required.
Serving on the Financial Forecasting Task Force is an opportunity for Peekskill residents to share their expertise and help the District make the best use of all available resources to educate Peekskill’s children. The Board of Education invites community volunteers with a financial background to forward a letter of interest and resume to the attention of Debra McLeod, District Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org, by July 15, 2011.
