2019-2020 Ad Hoc Finance Committee Meetings

The first interim budget report was presented by District Business Official Kirsten Starsiak at the December 10, 2019 School Board meeting. The district was able to certify to the county that we can meet our financial obligations for the next three years only after reducing $1 million in expenditures in next year’s projected budget.

The board requested that an ad hoc Finance Committee meet through the month of January to produce a menu of possible expenditure reductions in time to produce a balanced 2020-2021 budget.
