Travis Unified leaders today will lead a workshop about the Fairfield district’s 2016-17 budget.
Superintendent Kate Wren Gavlak, the five-member governing board and Jamie Metcalf, the district’s newly hired chief business officer, will discuss the recently approved $54.5 million budget, which has $1.7 million in deficit spending and an ending balance of $3.4 million. No action will be taken during the meeting.
In a June 14 presentation, Metcalf advised trustees to prepare for slower growth, which, in the coming years, likely will mean hiring freezes.
