The District’s base budget for District-wide IT operational costs is $2,430,000. As stated earlier this amount is augmented each year with one-time funds. The amount required has lessened over the years as IT implemented different projects such as VOIP and virtual servers. The amount needed in addition to the $2.4M has averaged $1.2M for the last five years including 2016-17. This allocation is the only area in the District’s budget where one-time funds support an on-going need. While that may seem concerning, the relatively stable amount required each year as well as the large amount of one-time funding available, allows the District to easily fund the annual amount needed. This allocation has first priority on unrestricted PDF one-time funds.
