BUSINESS ADMINISTRATOR - LETTER TO COMMUNITY

  • Carter

    Hello Barker Learning Community. We want to take this time to update everyone on a few important budget and operations items.

    Tax collection officially closed as of October 31st. If a property tax bill went unpaid, that bill will be levied on the January 2024 county tax bill.

    We are also in the starting stages of developing our 2024-2025 school budget. This involves working closely with our Budget Advisory Committee over the next several months. Our members include Board of Education representatives Randy Atwater (President), John Sweeney (Vice President) and Emily Gow. Community members are also involved: Ted Dauphinee, Tammy Mallon and Ruth King. We will be doing regular updates on the budget development process at our monthly Board of Education meetings. Information regarding Board Meeting dates and budget development can be found on the district website under the Business Office and Board of Education sections.

    As we are all aware, the district needed to make the shift to our new mascot, the “Bulldogs.” Campus visitors will see re-branding going on around the district over the winter and likely into the spring. We thank you all for your flexibility and continued support during this process.

    Please reach out to the Business Office if you have any questions. 

    Sincerely,

    Michael Carter
    Business Administrator
