EXECUTIVE SUMMARY DATE: April11, 2016

CONTACT PERSON: Alice Chamberlain Kathy Westfall

PURPOSE To approve the EduStaff Agreement.

EXPLANATION: The current provider for substitute personnel for all county school districts is PESG. Over the last several years, the district has not received good customer service from PESG. During a recent County wide request for proposal process conducted by the lSD, PESG was once again chosen for these services. APS Administration has chosen to contract with a different vendor, EduStaff, for these services, despite the decision by other county schools to stay with PESG. EduStaff does not charge fees to their employees, other than for fingerprints. Our current vendor charges substitutes an administrative fee, plus a fee of $40 for additional training. EduStaff has more in person classroom management training, as well as additional screening of potential employees during the hiring process. Overall, EduStaff will provide increased customer service for both administration, as well as their substitutes. EduStaff is charging the district an 18% contract rate. Our current rate with PESG is 17.96%. The conversion to EduStaff is planned to take place July 1, 2016.

RECOMMENDATION: It is the recommendation of the Director of Human Resources and the Chief Financial Officer that the Adrian Board of Education approve the agreement with EduStaff, and authorize the Chief Financial Officer to sign on behalf of the district.

PURPOSE OF AMENDMENT: To comply with Act 621, the Uniform Budgeting and Accounting Act states that an operating budget must be adopted by a school district by July 1 of the current fiscal year. Further, that as financial conditions in the district change and these changes significantly affect the existing budget, the budget must be amended to reflect the new projections. The Business Office has reviewed the budget and have made many line item adjustments, the net of which are indicated below. Because of the large number of line items reviewed (approx. 3000) and changed, it is not possible to explain each one. However, listed below are some of the major changes: Revenues: State: Foundation Allowance Categorical Net Increase - State Local: LISD Reimbursements Miscellaneous Net Increase - Local Federal Programs: All Others

Conclusion The December 2015 budget amendment reflected a decline in student enrollment of 50 more than projected. Since December, the district has experienced several resignations. With the lower student enrollment, administration was able to address the resignations by consolidating classes and eliminating some positions, while filling others at a lesser cost. This resulted In savings of over $180k for the remainder of 2015-16. On the revenue side, the 25e adjustments to the blended count were part of an increase of $96k in state aid. Additional funding from the ISD on special education reimbursements added $101k on the revenue side. Bringing the operating deficit to a figure closer to break even helps with the budget planning for 2016-17.
