Brevard Schools Announces Community Budget Forums

According to Brevard Public Schools, Community Forums have been scheduled to gain input from community members regarding the proposed revenue enhancements and budget cuts and will be held from 6:30 – 8:00 pm for the below dates and locations:

Astronaut High School Auditorium - February 18, 2013
Bayside High School Auditorium - February 19, 2013
Hoover Middle School Media Center - February 21, 2013
Viera High School Auditorium - February 25, 2013

BPS needs to reduce its budget by $30.7 million due to capital shortfalls related to the ending of a targeted property tax and the failure at the polls last November of a new sales tax.

The current cut list includes closing four schools, eliminating choice schools’ corridor busing, increasing class sizes, requiring secondary teachers to have an additional class, and eliminating elementary art teachers.

A power point with all cuts can be found at:
