Scotts Valley Unified School District Budget Projection Example 2009-2013

This chart displays an example SVUSD budget projection through 2013 illustrating:

  • Revenue
  • Expenditures
  • Reserves
  • Deficit of reserves through 2012

What’s depicted here is a perfect storm, expenditures exceeding revenue, reserves in constant drastic decline, and deficits rising.

[Update: April 18, 2010] This graph uses a logarithmic scale highlighting the fact that it’s the Reserves taking the biggest hit in 2011-2012. Since the other lines only change marginally over time the change in Reserves has the biggest impact. The scale can be changed using the control at the top left hand edge of the chart.
