Work Session Notes
Board members received an update on the final unaudited budget from June 30, 2020 to July 1, 2021. The official audited budget will come before the school board for review and approval at a meeting in December. Overall, expenditures during the last school year exceeded revenue by about $6 million due to an increase in salaries and benefits, technology to support distance/hybrid learning and other COVID-related expenses. The district was the last in the state to settle employee contracts, which resulted in both years of the two-year contract being paid out as part of last year’s fiscal budget.
The school board also received a report on student enrollment, which included student enrollment numbers and demographic information across the district and within each school and program.
