Preliminary Budget for 2017-2018

An overview from the Capitol Journal. The budget overview was given at the board meeting held Monday, May 8th.

From the article, “The preliminary numbers prepared by Business Manager Darla Mayer still are subject to change but show a total budget for the 2017-18 school year of a little more than $29.7 million.

That’s a roughly 3.2 percent or $924,736 increase over the 2016-17 budget. The early budget numbers include increases in the general fund, special education fund, bond redemption fund and the school lunch program.”
