The Consolidated High School District 230 School Board approved a balanced budget for the fourteenth consecutive year, at its meeting Thursday night.
The $130 million operating budget is balanced with revenues projected to slightly exceed expenditures in these funds. These four funds, Education, Operations and Maintenance, Transportation, and IMRF/Social Security, represent the day-to-day expenses of the school district.
“Posting a balanced budget for the fourteenth consecutive year is really good news,” said Assistant Superintendent for Business Services John Lavelle, “considering nearly two-thirds of Illinois school districts are currently operating with deficit budgets. This is attributable to the leadership of our School Board and administration, as well as staff who work each day to provide outstanding opportunities for students while keeping a close eye on expenses.”
“The District 230 School Board takes our responsibility to taxpayers very seriously,” said School Board President Rick Nogal. “We have requested zero percent tax levies over the past number of years and have kept fees for families stable. All while providing an excellent education for students at Sandburg, Stagg and Andrew High Schools.”
