budget overview1
Budget Overview
  • The 2013-14 proposed budget basically proposes a $155,000 revenue shortfall (Fund 10 = Revenues $22,314,179 – Expenses = $22,470,786). Reason: The 2012-13 final budget attained a $255,000 surplus ($36,000 of which was generated from a health insurance credit). The district proposes to add $100,000 of this year’s revenues toward the districts OPEB liability.
  • The overall Fund 10 Revenue Budget therefore increases by approximately $100,000 while the overall Fund 10 expense budget remains the same as presented at the October 8, 2013 meeting.
  • The Total of all Designated Fund Balance will decline by approximately $155,000 due to budgeting expenses more than revenues. While the OPEB Designated Fund Balance will increase by $100,000.

published budget change request
Published Budget Change Request
  • The Annual Required Budget Publication, which is mandated to be published two weeks prior to the Budget Hearing, was published October 10, 2013. However the budget for taxes; general state aid and computer aid change annually for exact figures are not known until late in October.
  • Therefore, in addition to approving the Tax Levy Resolution, I am requesting that the Board of Education approve the revenue budget changes in accordance to Wisconsin Statute 65.90(a)..
Malcolm Forbes once said:

“Education’s purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one”

While the purpose of the Annual Budget is to achieve educational objectives that will impact the future.

And we need to attend to financial numbers, in the bigger picture of what we are all about it can even be more than owing an education to our children.We can help to open the mind and heart to :

  • life’s mysteries to be told
  • wondrous possibilities that life holds
  • the awesome potential in each to unfold
