CCSD exams possible errors in budget workbooks; could more cuts be on the way?

LAS VEGAS - A possible budget error may prompt more budget cuts in the  Clark County School District.  

In a CCSD memo obtained by 8 News NOW, a number of concerns have arisen regarding the accuracy of information in the Strategic Budget Workbooks released Tuesday.

Leaders in the Strategic Budget Office are working to provide accurate information on the inconsistencies related to site-based administrator salary increases.  It turns out the figures provided previously in a memorandum from the Academic Unit on Aug. 28 for the average salary increases may not have included retroactive payment for fiscal years 2016 and 2017.

While the Strategic Budget Office is expeditiously attempting to address the issues and inconsistencies, this communication intends to make you aware that adjustments will need to occur.

CCSD Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky is responding to the budget issue saying, "some of our schools weren't getting the correct calculations in their admistrative costs." 
Skorkowsky also said, "this is only the second time that we have had to do strategic budgets under the reorganization and we actually only have one programmer who designs the entire spreadsheet system. We're working on this week on the messaging on the school base because we don't think those will change anymore at all at this point in time and then we'll work on the central cuts next week."

Kevin Child is a CCSD Trustee. Child says, "we should have know before the public. This is what we're worried about, seeing where we're at because there's a lot of things going on, that the pages are missing in this budget."

Child also says, " getting a lot of phone calls, a lot of e-mails and a lot of people are frustrated, including some of the trustees."
