A financial consultant warned the Vallejo school board that if the district continues its current spending pattern, the district may not be able to meet its financial obligations in two years.
Terri Ryland of Ryland School Business Consulting presented the grim news during a budget presentation before the Vallejo City Unified School District Board of Education on Wednesday night.
The district’s general fund is expected to lose $10 million during the current fiscal year, Ryland explained. If the district can’t add $12 million — $8 million in 2018-19, and $4 million in 2019-20 — in revenue to the budget, then cuts to the general fund will need to be made.
Ryland warned the district it “can’t do business as usual.”
