Subject: August Financial/September Enrollment Report
This is the busiest time of year for me and I have been working on district contracts, benefits, and year-end close. As there are so many year-end entries that affect August, it doesn’t make much sense to run August reports until things are completed. I will present the Year-End Financial Statements for 15-16, as well as the September and October financial reports during the second November board meeting. I will include projected revenues and expenditures beginning in December 2016.
The enrollment spreadsheets are attached, with summaries by headcount for September and a comparison of budgeted FTE to actual average FTE. We are actually down almost 28 FTE from last year’s average, but due to conservative budgeting, we are up 26.85 FTE over budget districtwide. The decrease in FTE over last year is mainly due to a large number of Running Start Students we have this year. We normally have between 35 and 40 full-time Running Start students. This year we have 72 full-time students, which really affects our total FTE. I also included a graph which gives a comparison, by grade (Graduating Class), from the June 2016 count to the September count. I will continue to keep you apprised each month and will let you know how this affects the district projections starting in December.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
