Travis Unified leaders tonight 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, citing information from the nonpartisan Legislative Analysts Office in Sacramento, advised trustees to prepare for slower growth, which, in the coming years, likely will mean hiring freezes.
