Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, Dec. 16, 2015 7A Quincy Elementary School kindergartener Quincy Petersen receives her Principal's Award from new principal Lara Hollister. She "always does quality work from the heart," said her teacher Kathy Whitaker.

Photos by Delaine Fragnoti PUSD, from page 1A contributions to the classified employees retirement fund are projected to rise from 11.85 to 16.6 percent in the next two years. These increases will add $2.3 million to the district's salary base by 2020-21, Cavin explained. The cost of delivering special education services has been accelerating, too. The district expects to receive a report soon that looks at those costs. Terry Oestreich, acting superintendent, said she expected the report to include 90 recommendations. The district also spends considerable funds on aging facilities. A district advisory committee is currently assessing what buildings could be declared surplus. That committee is scheduled to meet this afternoon, Dec. 16. The former district office in the historic Quincy schoolhouse, which needs $5 million in repairs, and Indian Jim School in the Feather River Canyon are on the agenda, said Ron Logan, spokesperson for the committee. Transportation costs in the geographically sprawling district add up as well, and the budget advisory committee is looking for increased efficiencies there, according to Cavin's report. Fifteen full-time positions cost the district $663,000 a year, according to material from the budget advisory committee. A number of uncertainties add to the budget woes. In the next two years the district will likely shift from being a Basic Aid district to being funded according to the Local Control Funding Formula. A Basic Aid district is one in which local property taxes yield greater revenue than the state's funding formula (LCFF) does. "The good news," said Cavin, "is that we get the higher of the two numbers." But the district is at the mercy of the state and federal governments. This year the district received a combined sum of $1.84 million in one-time state funds and federal forest reserve funds that it can't count on in future years, Cavin said. Savings from empty administrative positions--superintendent, director of special education and fiscal director--helped this year's bottom line. But those positions have been or are being filled: Cavin took over as chief business official Nov. 30, a search is currently underway for a new superintendent and interviews are scheduled next week for the special ed position. County Office of Education The county office Of education received a positive certification in its first interim budge report. The county office has an operating deficit of $361,000, but will transfer forest reserve funds to cover it. The office "is and will continue to be fiscally solvent for years to come, as long as we continue to be fiscally prudent," Laurie Pendray, fiscal services director, told the board.
