A Note From The Superintendent's Desk - A trait that my father taught me is to “stay positive”. As the Superintendent of the Mt. Olive School District, I am very proud of all the positive things that occur on a daily basis within the school district. Every article that I have written for the paper has tried to focus on the positive. With that said, here is what is going on financially with the school district.
Since 2010 state funding has decreased tremendously for Mount Olive School District, as well as every other public school in the state. Mt. Olive has lost over $1,000,000 from state cuts during this time frame. Mt. Olive has made numerous cuts to adjust to less revenue from the state. Now local money is also decreasing! The EAV (equalized assessed value) of property within the district is down over 5% for the upcoming school year. This equates to a loss of over $40,000 for the district next year.
The average daily attendance for the 2014-2015 came in at 471.91. The 2013-2014 average daily attendance was 489.07. The district attendance is down 3.26% from last year which will result in another $100,000 loss of revenue for the district.
If the school district enrollment continues to decline, further cuts are going to be necessary.
We have a wonderful community that truly believes that education is a vital for the future of our community. We must work together to find solutions in these difficult financial times.
