    Termination of probationary staff

    Due to decreases/changes in enrollment, elimination of positions, uncertainty of funding, lack of funds, performance or return from leave of senior teachers, the Board voted to terminate two probationary teachers.

    Quarterly budget report and amendments 

    Bridget Peterson, director of finance, presented the revenue and expenditure reports for all funds for the third quarter ending March 31, 2018. Both revenues and expenditures are within budget for fiscal year 2017-2018 and are very comparable to this time last year. Peterson 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.

    Budget assumptions

    Bridget Peterson spoke about 2018-2019 fiscal year budget assumptions which are developed with input from the School Board through work sessions. Budget assumptions will be used in financial projections and in determining the final budget. The final 2018-2019 budget will be adopted in June 2018.
