Keeping a lid on personnel costs
from District Administration Magazine
Districts devote nearly 80 percent of their budgets to personnel costs — leaving little wiggle room for administrators tasked with maintaining fiscal responsibility and boosting the quality of education in a time of nearly stagnant funding. John Hutchison, chief financial and operations officer at Olathe Public Schools in Kansas, began budgetary planning for the 2017-2018 school year without knowing how much aid to expect from the state. Since 2015, funding has been frozen at 2014-2015 levels — and, as late as July 2017, state legislators were still debating the year's education budget.
