Budget numbers and more — that is what Vacaville Unified leaders will hear and discuss Thursday when they meet in a special governing board workshop.
Chief Business Officer Deo Persaud will lead a budget workshop for the seven-member board, during which he will lay out in detail the 2016-16 budget, at nearly $109 million, with $660,000 in red ink and an ending balance of $16.5 million. Nearly 15 percent of the budget will be held in reserve, for economic uncertainties, Persaud told trustees during a June meeting.
Additionally, Superintendent Jane Shamieh, during last week’s regular trustee meeting, said a Solano County Office of Education official also may offer information about budgets from other Solano school districts.
