Fiscal Implications of School District Reorganization

In an effort to continue to meet the changing demands on our clients, we are now offering the Fiscal Implications of School District Reorganization as an online workshop. This format provides many benefits, including ease of viewing at your desk, viewing the presentation at a time that is convenient to you, and eliminating the need to travel to a location outside of the area.

The education community is again feeling much pressure to reduce costs, only this time it has become extremely difficult to cut when all of the low hanging fruit have been picked. Many local educational agencies are looking into ways to continue to provide services even though revenues are flat or declining. District reorganization may present an opportunity to meet the goal of maintaining services and programs. The Legislature enacted AB 2328 (Chapter 906/1998), which made it more attractive for small- and medium-sized school districts to consider unification or consolidation.

This workshop provides all of the information necessary to enable school agencies to identify and understand the fiscal impact of unification and the reorganization process.

Michele Huntoon, CPA, and Robert Miyashiro lead the discussions on the fiscal issues associated with district reorganization through consolidation, unification, and reorganization resulting from the breakup of existing school districts.
