Quarterly budget report & amendmentsCarole Nielsen, director of finance, presented the revenue and expenditure reports for all funds for the third quarter ending March 31, 2017. Both revenues and expenditures are within budget for fiscal year 2016-2017 and are very comparable to this time last year. Nielsen also reported on budget amendments. As additional budgetary information becomes known, it is necessary to amend the District's budgets to reflect those changes. For more details, please visit the Budgets & Finance page.

School start times
After years of consideration and an intensive eight-month public review, the School Board approved start times changes that feature an 8:35 a.m. – 3:15 p.m. schedule for the high schools. The high schools’ current schedule is 7:25 a.m. – 2:05 p.m. The new schedule will go into effect in fall 2018, giving parents, students and staff more than a year to adjust schedules and make plans for the 2018-19 school year.
