Board of Education Meeting Recap September 18

 Garden City Public Schools Board of Education met during a special meeting on Monday, September 18, 2023. The meeting was held at the Educational Support Center Board Room, 1205 Fleming Street.  The board did not take any action on the 2023-2024 budget at the September 11th meeting due to a delay of the publication of the budget in the newspaper. The board took up the budget in a public hearing at 6:00 p.m. during the meeting.

During the meeting, the Board of Education adopted a Resolution to Exceed the Revenue Neutral Tax Rate for the 2023-2024 school year.  They approved the Resolution to adopt the Local Option Budget Percentage. 

Before approving the budget, they did take a moment to recognize that they did receive a Building Needs Assessment. It was reviewed and evaluated by the board and was used in their consideration of the Budget Approval Process. This assessment allowed them to align the district’s budget according to the items identified in the Board of Education Needs Assessment Summary.  The Board then adopted the 2023-2024 district budget as presented.

The next meeting of the Board of Education will be Thursday, September 21, 2023, at 5:00 p.m. in the Board Room at the Educational Support Center, 1205 Fleming Street.
