Fillmore Central School Board Report


Fri, Aug 27th, 2004
Posted in Features

The preliminary audit shows Fillmore Central’s undesignated fund balance at roughly $250,000 reported Superintendent Myrna Luehmann at the district’s monthly meeting on Tuesday, August 24, held at the middle school’s media center. Though board members would like to see this amount at $400,000-$500,000, the quarter million dollar figure will allow the district to head off a proposed levy request for at least another year.

“We’re at the end of the line with cuts without damaging education,” Luehmann said. With state aid in a major decline in the last three years, declining enrollment, and ever rising costs, school board members have struggled with keeping expenses in line with available funds. Chairman Gary Hellickson thanked the administration for the “good job” in watching the district’s budget and getting the most for their money. Luehmann requested the board keep in mind a levy proposal for next year, as it takes another year before the district receives any benefits.

“When we come to the public it will be for real”, summarized Chairman Hellickson at the conclusion of the discussion.

Donations

Jim Simonson and a represenative of ProCorn, presented a $2,000 check to Supt. Luehmann for elementary playground equipment. The businessmen stated they were happy to do this kind of thing and knew the district would make good use of the gift.

The second donation came from the school’s Booster Club as Keith Larson presented a $5,000 check to Chairman Hellickson. These funds are used to help meet the athletic department’s needs each year.
