June 23, 2015
Rockford Board of Education
Rockford Public School District No. 205
501 7th Street
Rockford, IL 61104
Dear Board of Education:
We are pleased to present the Annual Budget for Rockford Public School District No. 205
(RPS205), Rockford, Illinois, for fiscal period beginning July 1, 2015 through June 30, 2016 (FY
16). The budget was prepared using the modified accrual basis, which mirrors the basis of
accounting used for the governmental fund audited financial statements. It is balanced, within
available resources, and is aligned to achieve the RPS205 Strategic Plan. The budget is the plan
of instruction expressed in dollars and cents. Through the allocation of resources, the global
focus of instructional outcomes should be evident to the reader of this document. Responsibility
for both the accuracy of the data and the completeness of the presentation rests with the District.
RPS205 has been impacted by the local, State, and national economic conditions that limit the
availability of additional resources to effectively match the increases in the cost of doing business.
In fiscal year 2015, Administration enacted a mid-year budget reduction plan to halt a projected
budget shortfall of $8 million, which includes a reduction in expected funding from the State of
Illinois of approximately $738,000. Administration enacted over $7 million worth of reductions and
spending freezes for the remainder of the fiscal year 15 school year with the goal of minimal
impact to schools.
To that end, the Administration is presenting a 2015 – 2016 budget that aligns with the newly
adopted strategic plan “Strategy 9: Resource Allocation – We will proactively forecast and
allocate resources that balance the needs of taxpayers and the community with the critical needs
of fulfilling our mission and vision.” We believe the data, as presented, is accurate in all material
aspects; that it is presented in a manner designed to fairly set forth the financial position and the
projected results of operations of the District. All disclosures necessary for public understanding
of the Board’s priorities in educating children in the city of Rockford have been incorporated within
this report.
The FY 16 budget reflects the mission of RPS205 to provide educational services to the students
of Rockford to advance attainment of individual goals as productive members of society. The
expectation and mission will continue to be to improve instructional outcomes for children, and
build a workforce capable of meeting the challenges of the 21st century. Moderate inflationary
increases of cost and linear revenue lines have become the ‘new normal’ in the realm of
education, which can create new challenges in budget development and fiscal stability.

INTRODUCTORY SECTION

Association of School Business Officials (ASBO) International presented the Meritorious Budget
Award to RPS205 for its annual FY 2015 budget presentation. This is the third consecutive year
the school system has achieved this prestigious award. The purpose of this award program is to

receive the prestigious Merit Budget Award. It is the District’s belief that our budget document
meets these professional standards and will be submitting to ASBO for consideration.
Additionally, the District believes its current budget presentation will meet the Distinguished
Budget Presentation Award program requirements for the Government Finance Officers
Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) and will submitting it to GFOA for
consideration for a first time award.
This budget document is presented in four main sections:
1. The Introductory Section provides an overview of the budget document and highlights
important information contained in the budget. The objective is to highlight major points
and explain budget decisions or recommendations.
2. The Organizational Section provides the context and framework within which the budget is
developed and managed. This framework includes the District’s organizational and
financial structure as well as the controls that direct and regulate the development and
administration of the budget.
3. The Financial Section presents the adopted budgets for the school district compared with
the results of the past budget plans and future projections.
4. The Information Section contains information on past and future budgets as well as factors
that influence the current budget. This section puts the budget into context and it explains
past budget decisions. It is designed to give both a historical and future perspective to the
budget.
In summary, the FY 16 budget is a prudent plan that balances the many needs of our students
within the economic constraints of our state and community. The members of the Board of
Education have provided outstanding support for the educational services of the District and the
