The faculty board is warning of funds cuts in advance of a predicted drop in enrollment.
SEATTLE — The Seattle University Board will decide no matter whether to approve a $1.6 billion finances for the impending faculty year. The vote is scheduled for Wednesday night.
Seattle Public Educational institutions is now scheduling for a tighter price range, and enrollment is a major reason why.
The funding the district gets from the state is tied to enrollment, so fewer pupils indicate less dollars.
Seattle Public Educational facilities put out a warning on its web site about the have to have to make changes, noting that it had budgeted for extra than 52,000 students last school yr, but ended up with about 1,900 fewer college students than anticipated. The difference resulted in the district getting $28 million considerably less in revenue, the district wrote.
Enrollment proceeds to fall with 48,748 pupils predicted in the 2022-23 faculty year.
Enrollment was talked over during the school board’s June 22 meeting.
“I think it can be not that there are kindergarteners out there that usually are not enrolling. It truly is that that town is starting to be so unaffordable for households that we never have new younger kids, new young families and new kids coming into this procedure for the reason that men and women are transferring,” said faculty board member Liza Rankin all through the meeting.
