b) Budget Discussion: OCBE will provide special allocation for short falls of 18/19 school year resulting from unknown invoices. Bookkeeper worked with Rebecca Karlen to distribute funds to departments. Historically, SBDM policy funded departments and registration fees were swept to Fund 22 to buy big purchases at end of year. Going forward, registration fees will be given directly to departments. We will attempt to limit operating costs to $40,000 to determine how much fees should be for future school years. We will also explore a Chromebook subsidy program where student pays, helps to manage and upon final payment, will own Chromebook. It will limit the number of Chromebooks OCHS will need to purchase and maintain.
