As one calendar year ends and another is set to begin, Travis Unified leaders on Tuesday heard a cautionary tale of future state and federal funding for schools, a story that comes as the 5,100-student district this year will see a $2.8 million net increase over last year’s budget and labor unions are sure to clamor for more than just nominal pay hikes.

Shortly after the governing board re-elected Ivery Hood as president, Chief Business Officer Ken Forrest, using a detailed PowerPoint presentation for his 2014-15 first interim budget report, said the district’s 2014-15 projected budget of $44 million may be a sign of good times compared to previous years but state officials predict that revenue growth by 2019-20 will slow as the U.S. economy continues to grow modestly.
