Parkland School Board Approves Proposed 2015-16 General Fund Budget

A Proposed General Fund Budget for the 2015 – 2016 school year in the amount of $157,677,695 was approved by the Parkland Board of School Directors during the regularly scheduled Board meeting on Tuesday, May 19, 2015. Last month’s budget review showed a deficit of approximately $1.2M that needed to be eliminated in order for Parkland School District to be within the Act 1 Index of 1.9%. The balanced budget includes adjustments to revenues and expenditures to eliminate the deficit. The Governor’s budget proposes approximately $1.2M in additional state funding/reimbursements for Parkland Schools, but much needs to be approved by the legislature in order to make the funds come to fruition by June 30, 2015 when school districts must approve their final budgets.
