Quarterly budget report and amendments

Bridget Peterson, director of finance, provided revenue and expenditure reports for all funds for the first quarter ending September 30, 2020. The budget has been impacted due to the Covid-19 pandemic, with decreased revenue due to lower enrollment, and the areas of nutrition service and community service have seen a decrease in revenue and expenditures. Each quarterly budget update provides an opportunity to review budget variances and make amendments when information becomes available. The Board approved one budget amendment for this reporting period as presented at the meeting. For details, please visit the Budgets & Finance page.
