Fort Osage School District’s Board of Education held a special session the evening of Tuesday, June 26, at 5 p.m.
In addition to routine agenda items — including paying a roofing contractor and accepting bids for services such as autism assessment and items such as network switches — board members reviewed a budget proposal for the coming school year. NOTE: According to Board Secretary Sandra Klick, the budget was approved during the June 26 meeting.
Although it is not possible to know exactly how much revenue the district will receive over the coming year, administration’s estimate is $52.4 million. Expenses they estimate will be exceed revenues by about $1.7 million. Therefore, next year’s operating balance will be lower. According to Missouri statute, schools must approve their annual budgets by July 1.
