Riggs, Superintendent of Schools Material which the admini'tration red during the 39th legislative session indicated that the Chen.ey Schools would have, at best, a difficult time in fimancing its shol prrams during the 1965-67 bien,nium. This information pointed out that i.rmreases in funds should come from the State level and thal a sohol district's fixed charges, particularly those relating to salary programs fr all employees, bad built-in autoartatic incre ,aes which required, each school year, flmds to finance. During the course of the te@ishture a great deal of tlmug wa ,ert to ing school funds as well as changing the ne fo- muh by Which State fund were ditrRmd to selmal distrie It was felt that the new formu'l sml,ld not be ad}apted wilm$ providing adequate funds for ddgtribution. As it turns out, the new ap- portionment formula was adopted, but ade- quate funds lve not been pro- vided to maintain school pro- grams. On top .of inadequate funds, the legislature also, in the appropriatio.ns bill, ear- marked salary increases for i,,, other utilities and the addi- tion fixed charges commeted with the shave, would requh the use of the $30,000 cash re- serve carried dring 196.5-66, phm another $30,000 to be raised, pbas whatever ammm of eash reserve the would want to maintain, also to both certificated and chssffied emptoyees, thereby taking con-i be raised. trol of 80 per cent .of the bud- ! $50,000 Out of Balance getzraWay..from local shool J.

District Had Advantage During the past years the Chancy School District, like many others, has ,had a distinct advantage due  the presence of federally competed children in its . The federal gav. ermnent, .under the pvisions of PubIic Law 874, :hus paid what ,anmunts to "in lieu of taxes" to scheal distrk edu- of federal aetivitie aeta Faehald 'ALr Force Base.. These flmds aare made it poe, sible for the (eney Shools to oporae a good edeatR)nal pr without oig to the people with a request for extra funds flmough special levies for nmbntenance and opera- tions. Now, however, the new apportionmen formula dis- eou, nts some o4 the federal funds from the State entitbe- ment because it coun federal funds as local funds. In the first year of the bien,nium, the lass is $12,000, in .the retard an additional $20,000, .making a total ,of $44,000 in reve,nues tat are not available to the school district as they have been in the past The 10s o4 these funls, coupled with the extra east of opening the new b'igh school, and the fact that the Iegislature was rmt gener- ou in the State appropriations, has forced the Oheney School District, as well as many oth- ers, into either cutting pro- grams, or raising additional funds oeally. Budget Figure Cited Esti'rrmtes of ,income and ex- penditures for 1965.66 and 1966-67 indicate tlmt School District No. 360 ean preoare a preSminry budget for 1965- 66 which will maintain the present pogram, which can be bahnced, and whi'Ch will carry a $3'0,000 cash reserve. This bud'ge would *include: 1. 5 per cent salary increase for teachers. 2. Corresponding salary in- crease for building principeds. 3. 5 per cent for clsified emlloyees. 4. Prvision o: (a) An addi- tional elementary librarian, or; (b) Ftmds for curriculum de- veplnent work by a group of 10 teachers for three weeks during the summer. 5.
