As seen on the school's website,, Carlisle has released a statement about the District's Financial Update for Carlisle Local Schools in Carlisle, Ohio.  Here is the statement from the school.

District Treasurer Jerry Ellender said that the District is in the best financial shape its been in for over a decade but the concern now is declining State support for the District. The State provides over half the financial support for the District and the local taxpayers provide the rest. The State reduced their funding by 1% this year and will reduce it again by 2% next year.

The District balanced its budget in FY09 with a combination of cutting expenditures and increasing revenue by opening enrollment at all buildings. But the District's expenses continue to rise with inflation while the revenues are flat to declining. This means that even though we have money right now, it will run out within the next couple of years. (See Five-Year Forecast on Treasurer page for details)

The big concern now is what will happen in the next biennium State budget when the Federal stimulus dollars run out. The current year and next school years' state budgets were propped up by Federal stimulus dollars and there will be a big hole in the State budget for the next biennium without that Federal support. This could translate into school funding cuts in the State budget which will hurt our District since we rely on the State for half our support.

The local taxpayers have been doing their part in supporting the District, but now the State is reducing their share, and this places more needs for funding the District on the local taxpayer.

Carlisle Local Schools has an annual budget of about $15 million.The revenue sources for the District are approximately $8 million is State funding, $4.8 million in property taxes, $1.7 million in income taxes and the rest is made up of student fees and miscellaneous revenue. The district operates on the minimum legal property tax level for school districts of 20 mils, and a 1% School Income Tax plus the State Foundation funding.

    I already give plenty through income taxes and property taxes. As long as my income is not going up, I can't support any tax increases this posting may be alluding to. We all need to share the pain in these difficult times.

    anonymous - if that's the case, then the children of Carlisle will suffer at school. It's that simple. Carlisle schools are already running at the min. amount of resources and staff. Anymore cuts, and class sizes will become too big, and the kids won't have all the books or supplies they really need. Plus, you'll be driving your kids to school.

    I'm with anonymous, I have had to take a paycut 18 months ago with a new job following a layoff and have received no raise this past year -- if I'm not getting a raise, then the school district should not be getting a "raise." Place the burden more on those utilizing the public school system before coming back to ask me for more of my hard earned dollars. I will vote no for any additional income or property tax levies that they might be contemplating putting before voters. Besides, with the income tax, once I just to do better financially, the school district will start to do better financially.

    Does anyone realize that if you do not have a good school system that no one will want to move into your city and as a result your property values WILL go down.

    A raise?! You think the schools are asking for a raise?! Let me tell you something anonymous, they aren't asking for money to spend on movies and cupcakes. They're asking for money so they can afford the books and supplies needed to educate the kids. The state and federal government keeps on cutting funding to the schools. It's not a raise they want, they're just looking for money to fund their basic needs, money they're losing elsewhere. It sucks yes, but it is what it is.

    Sounds like two responses from teachers and two from the products of those teachers.
