By: Mike Stiles

(STURGIS) – The Sturgis Board of Education received a preview of the 2014-2015 budget during their Monday meeting.

Business Manager Vicki Watson shared with the Board the projected revenues for the upcoming school year, saying that it looks as if the per pupil funding from the state will be more than in the 2013-14 school year. ...... {LISTEN}.

If the projections are correct, revenue should be up just over $155,000 than in 2013-14.

Watson says that per pupil figure is based on the current foundation figure of $7,026; along with an increase of $111; the one time equity payment of $50; performance money at $60 and best practice of $52 per student. The budget is also based on a blended enrollment of 3,338 students in the Sturgis School District.

Expenditures are projected to be $29.8 million dollars, which is $114,800 less than expenditures in 2013-2014.

Watson says forecasting into the future continues to be very important because of what is being done at the State level in terms of the per pupil foundation allowance. She says Sturgis continues to take a conservative approach when it comes to budgeting so that the District won't be caught off guard.

A public hearing on the 2014-15 budget will be held during a special School Board meeting June 23 at 11:45 AM in the Board Room of the Central Commons.
