Unit 1 looking at deficit topping $400,000
Next year's state-aid situation may not be much different.
Daily News

"I will reluctantly make that motion," said Hutsonville Unit 1 School Board Trustee Bill Wyman, as he moved to adopt a $400,000 deficit budget for fiscal year 2013.

With the state failing to meet its obligations to area schools, most districts are looking at negative budgets. Hutsonville Unit adopted a budget reflecting $3,857,008 in disbursements and $3,442,896 in expected revenue.

Superintendent Julie Kraemer told the board that the budget does not include money still owed from the state. She believes if the state does pay that money, it will probably not make all of the payments next year, leaving Unit 1 in the same fiscal condition. The budget reflects about $415,000 in red ink.

Grade-school Principal Guy Rumler reported an 86 percent turnout at open house for grades pre-kingergarten through fourth grade. The high school did not post as high an attendance, but Principal Steven Lowe said it was good.

In regular business, the board approved the state application for recognition of schools, and directed posting of information regarding the FY 2012 budget and district salary information on the Unit 1 web site.

The board also rescinded the resolution adopted in 2001 authorizing the State Board of Education to make Unit 1 electronic transfers to ROE 12 per the Regional Office of Education's request.

After a brief executive session the board hired Tiffany White as the junior-high cheerleader coach, and Brent Nehls as junior-high basketball coach.

The next scheduled meeting will be Monday, Oct. 15.
