Rancho Palos Verdes City Council
   

TO: HONORABLE MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF THE CITY COUNCIL

FROM: ASSISTANT CITY MANAGER

DATE: JULY 1, 2003

SUBJECT: BUDGET ADJUSTMENT FOR STUDENT AND THE LAW

RECOMMENDATION

Adopt Resolution No. 2003- ; amending Resolution No. 2003-42 for a budget adjustment to the General Fund to fund Student and the Law during the 2003-2004 school year.

DISCUSSION

On June 17, 2003, Council considered whether to provide separate funding for the Student and the Law program in the City Budget. As adopted on June 3, 2003, the budget folded Student and the Law into the Grant Deputy program, with the expectation that the CORE Deputies would teach the classes during the upcoming school year as part of their regular duties. Principal Kelly Johnson testified that that the CORE Deputies would be unable to teach the classes at Peninsula High School, because they do not hold state teaching credentials. Separate funding would allow Deputy Tony Del Pinto, who holds the required credential, to continue teach the classes at both Peninsula High School and Rancho del Mar Continuation School. Based on this new information, Council directed staff to return with a Resolution for a General fund appropriation of $20,406 to fund the Student and the Law program in FY 03-04. The draft Resolution is attached for the City Council’s consideration and adoption.

FISCAL IMPACT

This budget appropriation would reduce the estimated General fund reserve of $8,274,681 to $8,254,275.
