Grand Total $129,443,214 How do we compare to our peers? Enrollment and Facility Projections Revenue and Expenditures
Trends and Projections Summary - Our Fiscal Challenges

Due to low local assessed valuation Liberty depends more on state formula resources. Currently 8% underfunded

Local assessed valuation per student is low compared to peers - 1 cent on our levy generates on average 135% less revenue than it does in peer districts

Low assessed valuation and rapid growth has forced us to reach our bonding capacity of 15%. Facility costs are already being covered by operating dollars and may need additional operating levy for facilities

Facilities are over-crowded and district has 20 modular buildings (40 classrooms) to manage student growth Academic Innovations for Increased Achievement

Personalize/customize learning to meet individual needs (just-in-time)

Increase motivation by creating relevant learning experiences

Increase partnerships with business, industry, and higher education to better understand what our students need to be successful in the future.

Use current tools and resources to prepare students for college and career Financially Sustainable Education Model

Reduce square footage per student

Stabilize and/or reduce administrative costs per student

Stabilize and/or reduce instructional costs per student

Stabilize and/or reduce operational costs per student Challenges continued . . .

Overall revenue increases are limited to state per pupil allocation for newly enrolled students and 2% projected assessed valuation growth

Salary scheduled has been frozen twice in last five years, annual cost to allow for horizontal and vertical movement is $1.6 million

Health care costs continue to rise by approximately 8% annually

Threats of reductions in federal support for education, sequestration

Student enrollment growth projected at 3% annually Missouri Peer Group

urbanicity to Liberty

Blue Springs, Kearney, Ladue, Lee's Summit, Lindbergh,
