The Benicia Unified School District Board of Trustees on Thursday will begin discussing the 2012-13 budget when it sees a draft of the document for the first time.
But even as they crunch the numbers, Chief Business Official Tim Rahill wrote in a report to the board, those numbers are unreliable.
“The district provides the 2012-13 draft budget information using the information from the Governor’s May Revise Budget,” Rahill wrote in another report to the board.
Figures from the May Revise rely on the voters of California to approve a November 2012 ballot measure that extends certain state taxes. However, “(i)f the November 2012 ballot measure … is not approved, then the Benicia USD could face budget adjustments of about $2M in the 2013/14 school year,” Rahill wrote.
