3rd Six Weeks – By the Numbers, Part 2

by Coy Holcombe.  

Before we look at the funding numbers through the third six weeks, I want to remind everyone that the basketball teams will be traveling to Van tonight for a district contest. The games will start at 4:30.

Yesterday, we looked at our attendance data through the third six weeks. Below is a table that details how the attendance data translates into the district’s state aid:

A couple of notes:

The deficit has already been accounted for by budget adjustments.

We continue to have a healthy enrollment in the High School. That is a contributing factor to the High School Allotment and CATE (Career and Technology Education) being more than the budgeted amount.

Our lower enrollment is the primary factor in the other categories being less than what was budgeted.

We will continue to monitor our finances closely and make any necessary adjustments. At the end of the 4th six weeks, we will review the numbers again.

I hope everyone has a great weekend.
