Jordan School District Budget Shortfall Survey

"For the 2010-11 school year Jordan School District anticipates at least a $29.2 million shortfall. The administration has recommended solution options in the areas of: additional personnel cuts, program and service cuts, transfer of expenditures to other programs, compensation, class size, and taxes. The Board is also anticipating additional cuts from the State in the range of $2-$12 million." (from district website)

Jordan School District has asked for parent input on how to deal with this budget crisis by completing a "budget reduction survey" that is found on the district website.
