EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:

“Flagstaff Unified School District #1 is an educational institution as well as an important
economic engine. The district is one of the largest employers in the city and spends over $100
million each year. This study examines the effects of FUSD’s FY2011 budget on the city of
Flagstaff and the greater community. The results indicate that the district contributes to a
vibrant local economy.”

The CCC&Y Board of Directors has voted in support of the FUSD Override.  The override will MAINTAIN a current level of maintenance and operations which is critical in this time of diminished educational resources.  We encourage your “yes vote” this coming November 4th in support of our children and youth and the critical resources necessary for their health and development.
