Twice during the fiscal year, a school district is required to submit a financial report certifying the district's ability to meet its financial obligations for the current year and two subsequent years. The reports examine the district's attendance, spending patterns, fund balance, reserve for economic uncertainties, and multi-year projections. Staff will present the 2018-2019 First Interim Budget Report, which reflects the district's financial position as of October 31, 2018.


The First Interim reports changes to the District's 2018-2019 budget adopted in June 2018.  The projected General Fund Unrestricted ending balance for 2018-2019 is estimated at $24,570,380, which is a 26.0% reserve, with total revenues at $75,635,747 and total expenditures at $80,518,402.
