OGDEN, Iowa—Governor Terry Branstad this week said he expects zero percent allowable growth for Iowa’s schools. Ogden Superintendent Bill Roederer says that is not a workable amount from the state. Roederer noted that school districts with enrollment increases might get by, districts with enrollment declines like Ogden will take a hit. Roederer says it’s still early in the state’s budget process so they will continue to monitor what’s happening. In the meantime, work will need to begin on next fiscal year budget for school districts. They need to be completed by April 15th.
