1 Fund 100 General Fund The General Fund is the chief operating fund of the School District. The General Fund is used to account for all financial resources except those required to be accounted for in another fund. The General Fund is the largest of the district s governmental funds. The General Fund budget of the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System is supported by revenue derived from four major sources ad valorem (property) taxes, other local receipts, the State of Georgia, and the Federal Government. Each of these categories consists of two or more revenue items that are accounted for separately in the school system s financial management records. The dominant sources of fiscal support for the Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools are local taxes and state funds. For fiscal year 2007, these two sources will provide 98 percent of the total revenue for this governmental fund. A summary by revenue category for the General Fund follows: Revenues and Other Sources Category Amount % of Total Local Taxes $ 141,525, % Other Local $ 5,041, % State $ 118,941, % Federal $ 600, % Total Revenues and Other Sources $266,109, % Total expenditures and other uses are budgeted at $273,974,214 with a use of unreserved fund balance of $7,865,

7 State Allotment Overview The State Allotment is divided into several parts, each of which describes a major component of Georgia s comprehensive approach to improving education. The State of Georgia defines a Quality Basic Education (QBE) in terms of the major needs to be met by the public school program. The twenty major needs are as follows: (1) Implementing a quality basic education curriculum in public schools state wide which ensures that each student is provided ample opportunity to develop competencies necessary for lifelong learning as well as the competencies needed to maintain good physical and mental health, to participate actively in the governing process and community activities, to protect the environment and conserve public and private resources, and to be an effective worker and responsible citizen of high character; (2) Providing all children and youth in Georgia with access to a quality program which supports their development of essential competencies in order that they may realize their potential; (3) Providing an equitable public education finance structure which ensures that every student has an opportunity for a quality basic education, regardless of where the student lives, and ensures that all Georgians pay their fair share of this finance structure; (4) Establishing and maintaining state-wide standards which ensure that each student has access to a quality program; (5) Making teaching an attractive and rewarding profession in order to attract, retain, and fully utilize highly competent personnel in all public schools of the state; (6) Providing effective staff development and attractive incentive programs which will motivate public school personnel to enhance their competencies and perform to their potential throughout their career; (7) Providing local school systems with the incentives, resources, and technical assistance they need to plan and implement improvements in their programs on a continuing basis; (8) Providing parents and the general public with information on the quality of schools and the achievement of the public school students in Georgia; (9) Providing appropriate school facilities in which quality educational programs can be offered, particularly in the small and sparsely populated school systems; (10) Providing an accountability system to ensure that all students are receiving a quality instructional program so that all students can achieve at their highest level; (11) Providing a seamless education system to allow for the delivery of educational programs at all levels and the movement of students between programs and education agencies as efficiently and effectively as possible and to provide for coordination on a continuing basis between agencies responsible for education services; (12) Providing a safe school environment so that students can learn and mature without fear of violence or intimidation; (13) Providing access to nursing services so that teachers can deliver instructional services without the added responsibility of addressing students' nursing needs and so that students can receive nursing services while at school; (14) Providing academic intervention programs designed to assist students who are performing below grade level in order to increase their mastery of critical academic knowledge and skills; (15) Providing an alternative educational environment for those students who need a different educational structure in order to properly master critical academic knowledge and skills and to provide an environment where they can stay in school and acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for a productive life; (16) Providing students with advice and assistance in planning their academic and work careers and achieving those goals; (17) Providing an evaluation process for all school system personnel to assure the public that personnel are performing at acceptable levels and providing quality educational services to all students; (18) Providing an environment where parents and the community can participate in school activities and support school personnel as they work with students and address their academic needs; (19) Providing for parent and community participation in the establishment of school programs, policies, and management so that the school and community are connected in meaningful and productive ways and providing support for teachers and school leaders in addressing the school's needs; and (20) Providing a means whereby the foregoing might be met in order to provide an opportunity for a quality basic education to the citizens of the state and to discharge the responsibilities and obligations of the state to ensure a literate and informed society. 103

8 State Allotment Overview Since different programs vary in their cost to operate, each of the 19 programs is assigned a different program weight. These weights reflect the cost of teachers and other instructional personnel; instructional materials; facility maintenance and operations (M&O) costs, media center personnel and materials costs; school and central office administration costs, and staff development. The high school general education program is defined as the base program for the purpose of determining relative program costs. The costs of each component of the high school program (grades 9-12) are totaled and the result is given a weight of one. The other 18 programs are assigned weights that reflect their cost relative to that of the high school program. The following weights were assigned for FY 2007: Program Name Assigned Program Name Assigned Weight Weight 1. Kindergarten Special education Category I Kindergarten Early Intervention Special education Category II Primary grades (1-3) Special education Category III Primary grades (1-3) Early Intervention Special education Category IV Upper elementary grades (4-5) Special education Category V Upper elementary grades (4-5) Early Gifted Intervention 7. Middle grades (6-8) Remedial education Middle school (6-8) Alternative Education High school general education (9-12) English Speakers of Other Languages Vocational labs (9-12) The amount of funds included in the program weights for each professional position is the beginning teacher salary. To adjust for varying levels of training, experience and responsibility of these personnel, a percentage increase is added for each school system. For FY 2007, the training and experience adjustment average is estimated at percent for Chatham County. Georgia Code contains several expenditure and position controls for the various State programs. These tests are currently under revision based on statutory changes made during the 2006 legislative session. To determine annually the total funds initially earned for the QBE formula program in each local system, the following process is used: 1. Calculate the weighted average of the two most recent FTE counts for each eligible program using the State weighting formula and multiply by the program weight. 2. Multiply the product in (1) by the basic student cost established in the General Appropriations Act. 3. Add to the product in (2) above the program adjustment amount for training and experience. 104

The funds cannot be used for supplies or equipment. For FY 2007, the total grant amount is $567, State Allotment Overview

13 Principal Supplement The State Board of Education establishes a salary schedule for school principals that includes a supplement amount for each principal. The amount of the supplement is based on the amount appropriated by the General Assembly for this purpose each year divided by the total weighted full-time equivalent student count for the State. The amount for each principal is determined by multiplying the amount per weighted FTE by the weighted FTE count for each school. The FY 2007 grant allocation for the principal supplement is $112,805 for the district. Equalization State law recognizes that there is great variation among school systems in the amount of money they can raise per student for each additional mill levied. The more additional mills levied, the more unequal becomes the educational opportunity among school systems. The State aid formula provides a method to partially deal with this problem. For each mill levied beyond the five mill local fair share up to fifteen mills, the State will provide the funds needed to make the amount raised per student equal to the amount raised per student in the 75 th percentile system. The FY 2007 State allotment for the Educational Equalization Funding Grant is $0. Local Five Mill Share The State requires local school systems to be "minority partners" in funding the Quality Basic Education (QBE) program. Intended to represent a share of total per student costs that fall in the range of 15 to 20 percent, systems are required to levy five effective mills as their "share". The five mills are levied on 40 percent of the most recent equalized adjusted school property tax digest, excluding statewide homestead exemptions. The amount of local fivemill share is applied as a reduction in State funding to each of the 19 QBE programs above. The total amount of Local Five Mills is capped at 20 percent of total QBE program earnings. The local five mill share for FY 2007 is $44,715,587 for the Savannah-Chatham County Public School system. The allocation of this five mill share is reflected in the description of each program above. Mid-Term Adjustment Since the State funding formula used to project State aid is based on full-time equivalent student counts that are taken in previous school years, the Georgia Department of Education (DOE) will adjust the total State aid earned as more recent counts become available. If the more recent counts result in an increase in funds needed, the DOE will request the additional funds from the General Assembly. If the student count is less than was originally calculated, districts are currently held harmless for the remainder of that fiscal year. Austerity Reductions When the Georgia Legislature fails to appropriate the amount of funding required to fully fund the QBE formula earnings, austerity (undesignated) reductions are made to the State allotment amount. For FY 2007, this amount is ($3,608,139). School districts are given the flexability to apply these reductions to any of the QBE programs. 109
