The M & O (maintenance and operations) budget is the portion of the budget used for the daily operation of the district. It is comprised of state and local funds. The majority of the local funds come from property taxes. A couple of notes about the budget:

  • Function 51 – Maintenance – contains all the utilities (electricity, gas, phone, trash collection) for the district. That is why it is the second largest function in the budget.
  • Function 93 – Payments to Fiscal Agents – is the share that EISD pays to our special education co-op.
  • Function 99 – Other Intergovernmental Charges – is the amount paid to the Henderson County Appraisal District for appraisal costs.
  • Function 41 – Admin – contains all the costs associated with the central administration (business office, tax collection, superintendent, and school board).
  • Function 36 – Co/Extracurricular – contains the costs for athletics, part of band, cheerleading, the districts drug testing program, one act play, UIL academics, and stipends for all extracurricular activities

Overall, the 2010-2011  M & O budget is 5.57% lower than the 2009-2010 M & O budget. If you have any questions about any part of the budget, please contact me at cholcombe@eustaceisd.net.
