The Fiscal Year 2016 Budget will be approved at the regular Board
meeting that will start at 5:00 PM on September 16, 2015. We ended the 2015 Fiscal Year on
June 30, 2015 with an unaudited overall deficit of $437,928 compared to a budgeted $841,419
deficit spending plan. $423,000 of that deficit came in the Education Fund, the main fund that
drives our District. In all funds combined, we have an unaudited total of $3,603,951 for a bank
balance. In the big picture, that is great news, and hopefully we can provide the same results
next year in order to extend the life of the District.
