The Bond County Community Unit 2 Board of Education has adopted a deficit budget for this 2021 fiscal year.
The board met Monday night and conducted a public hearing on the budget.
Superintendent Wes Olson told WGEL the pandemic has caused a lot of uncertainty with the budget and officials have tried to be conservative in light of that. He pointed out that the operational budget will be about $1 million in the red and said he fully expects for the budget to be amended in the future. Olson said there are additional uncertainties concerning the overall state budget.
