With a decline in enrollment and a decrease in dollars from the expected from state, the Kyrene School District is expected to get nearly $3.7 million less next school year.

The projection report for the 2013 fiscal year - which begins July 1, 2012 - was given to the governing board last week during a study session.

District leaders also gave the board the best-case scenario, a decrease of about $2.6 million, and the worst-case scenario, a decrease of about $4.8 million

The district is creating a citizen's budget council of 12 to 14 members, to be made up of parents, educators and business executives.

A budget proposal is expected to come before the board in April 2012, with final budget approval in May 2012.
