Look at this chart from the June 29, 2016 presentation to the EPISD facilities advisory committee:
We can all understand that forecasting is more difficult when looking out long periods than short.
Why then could the district’s new deputy superintendent of finance and operations tell us what she thinks the taxable value of properties in the district will be in 2046 but not what enrollment will be?
The chart shows a steady decline in average daily attendance at the district up through 2022. Average daily attendance is important because it is the primary source of revenue for the district.
How can she tell us with a straight face that attendance will magically stabilize six years from now in 2022 and that we will see no further declines?
Her numbers show a further 10% decline in attendance in the next 10 years.
Maybe we should be saving our money instead of buying luxuries.
We deserve better
