This Thursday the Jeffco staff will make a budget review presentation to the Board. This presentation will help the Board understand what challenges face the District and what their options are. It is also something that the public should take time to study and understand as well. The presentation can be found in the Board Docs Agenda for the meeting here. The presentation is 114 slides long…right now. It is not apparently complete yet, and additional handouts are mentioned in the presentation.
114 pages are tough for anyone to get through, much less study ahead of time. If nothing else, if everyone who wanted to understand the proposal actually printed it out, the amount of paper consumed would be…significant.
So to help you out, we have created an abbreviated or condensed version that is only 27 pages long. 🙂
It is in outline form and tries to combine multiple slides together into something a bit more readable. We have also commented in different sections, using an orange font so you will know what is our opinion and what is not.
You can open the file and download it here 140227_Budget Training Presentation – abbreviated by JeffCoSchoolBoardWatch-1. Please let us know if this helps.

5:30 7:00 p.m. at the Education Center! (The SPAC meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. – Thanks to Lisa for catching this! – jcsbw)
