Unit 2 Amended Budget


The next meeting of the Bond County Unit 2 school board is Monday, June 26.

The board holds the June meeting a week later than usual in order to close out the fiscal year with accurate financial statements.

At the May meeting, the board scheduled an amended budget hearing for 6:45 p.m., June 26 in the high school media center.

Superintendent Wes Olson told school board members the reason for the hearing was a budget deficit near a half-million dollars and a lack of categorical payments.

The school district is supposed to receive quarterly categorical program payments from the state. The first one, for the current fiscal year, was finally received in April. It totaled about $453,000.

Superintendent Olson reported he has been told the district should not expect any of the other three payments that are due. He noted if Unit 2 received just one more categorical payment from the state, the projected deficit for the year would be eliminated.
