    Budget for 2015-2016
    Carole Nielsen, director of finance, presented the 2015-2016 projected budgets for nutrition services, community services, capital outlay and debt service funds. While these budgets are an integral part of school operations, they operate financially in separate funds or reserves. These budgets will be included in the final budget document that will be presented to the Board for approval at the June 23, 2015, School Board meeting.

    School Board approves operational plan
    Each year, the School Board approves a series of goals and related activities on which the Superintendent and Cabinet will focus their work. This is known as the District Operational Plan (DOP). At the June 9 School Board meeting, Superintendent Dan Hoverman presented a review of the priority goals outlined for the 2015-2016 school year. To view the entire DOP, please visit here.
