A positive audit report for Fillmore Central


Mon, Dec 1st, 2014
Posted in Harmony Education

At Fillmore Central’s recent school board meeting, Jason Boynton of Smith and Schafer presented the annual audit report.

Boynton said expenditures were down a little, with a slight decrease in administrative costs. The general fund has been in the positive for several years. There was $6 million in revenue, with expenditures being a little less. He said the fund balance is pretty good right now.

The food service is operating at positive with $32,420 set aside for capital funds. The community services fund balance has been built up a little and is now at $79,381.

Outstanding debt is just under $4 million. Some of the bonds will be paid off soon. OPEB (other post-employment benefits) funds have a balance of $377,000.

Boynton said the district is operating strong with 60 percent of expenditures in the general fund balance. He didn’t see any problems.

Technology update

Neil Lundgren spoke to the board about the recent technology updates made at both the Harmony and Preston sites.

Over the summer, Lundgren and Aaron Janssen worked at upgrading the network. They replaced old hardware, switches and hubs. He said the old equipment they tore out was very outdated, and the new equipment will run faster and more efficiently. They also installed new IP camera systems in each building. They replaced the wireless hardware, and there are now access points in the classrooms instead of the hallways.

In the future, Lundgren said they are looking at an IP phone system, which is wireless. They have purchased two to test at $140 each.

Lundgren said what they learned this summer was incredible, and he thanked the board for their support.

Principal reports

Principal Heath Olstad said the total sales at the Elementary Scholastic Book Fair were $6,200, which is more than last year. The school will be getting $3,700 in Scholastic Dollars to purchase more books for the library.

The Scholar Club program was on November 19 for students who received a GPA of 3.5 or higher last year. Kerry and Jane Kingsley were the guest speakers.

The K-6 Holiday Concert is coming up on December 1 at 7 p.m. The choir concert is December 8, and the 5-12 band concert is December 15.
