Coronavirus forces USF, state universities to cut budgets

The coronavirus pandemic is forcing significant budget cuts at the University of South Florida and other schools in the State University System.

Officials at USF say they are consulting with college deans as they decide where to trim, and are in the early stages of the process. But they have already submitted a list of $36.7 million in proposed cuts for this year to the state Board of Governors, which oversees Florida’s 12 state universities. Proposals for further cuts next year of up to 15 percent will be submitted to the USF Board of Trustees on Wednesday.

In the Tampa Bay area public school districts are entrusted with multi billion dollar budgets that directly impact over 500,000 students, 50,000 employees and thousands of vendors and service providers.

Elected school boards in each of the counties are tasked with overseeing these dollars and providing oversight.

Ultimately, however,it falls upon the citizenry to monitor the conduct and expenditures of public dollars and the quality of education being provided to children.

Reports of many children struggling to attain a quality public education have been featured prominently in the local media and underscores the need for parents, family members and all stakeholders to actively participate in the educational process.

Please consider attending an upcoming school board meeting to add your voice to the call for a high quality public education for all children.
