The District has received $20,860,192 so far in COVID relief funding. While this money cannot be used for the recall election costs, this money has been invested in other areas which will save the District money in the future. For example, the District spent much of this money on technology improvements which will offset spending needs from the general fund in the future.
Over 400 students have left the District. The resulting loss of revenue (approx. $3,713,800) is a huge concern for the District’s future. The district receives about $12,000 per student per year. Saving even 30 students from leaving would result in $360,000.
