The budget for the Cornelia Connelly School in 2023 has been approved. The school is located in Anaheim, CA, and serves grades 9 through 12. As part of a global network of schools sponsored by the Society of the Holy Child Jesus, our distinctive spirit has been serving students around the world since 1846.
The approved budget for Cornelia Connelly School in 2023 is $102,000. This amounts to a 1.5% increase from last year's approved budget of $100,000. The board of trustees approved the budget at their meeting on June 2nd. It will go into effect on January 1st, 2023.
Salary and Benefits make up 32% of our budget, with a projected cost of $6 million dollars. We estimate that we will spend $2 million on supplies, which is 16% of our total budget. Operations are expected to cost $4 million, or 24% of our overall budget, while capital improvements are expected to be just under $2 million—or about 11% of our predicted expenses for the year.
The budget includes a $10 fee per student, with an additional $5 fee per student for students entering 5th grade. The fee will be paid by the parents of the student. The school will also be selling snacks and drinks at a cost of $2 per item.
The money raised from these fees will go towards paying for maintenance, repairs, and upgrades to the school building as well as providing funding for teachers' salaries and other expenses related to education.
