Ongoing funding are sources of revenue that the District relies on each year. Examples would be tax dollars from the state and federal government, and local property taxes.
“One-time” funding is a single payment from a source, typically to be used for a specific purpose. These can include grants, or state funding that must be allocated for things like textbook adoption, teacher training, technology, and more.
It is the District’s position that using “one-time” funds, which are not guaranteed year-to-year, for permanent salary increases commits the District to rising costs for years to come without an ongoing source of revenue.
