The gridlock with the Illinois budget has made it tough for Naperville school district 204 to solidify their budget for the coming year.
Chief School Business Official Jay Strang presented a very tentative 2016 fiscal budget at the latest school board meeting.
Due to delays in Springfield, the board is waiting for pieces to come into play. For starters – the amount of state aid they’ll be allotted, which could swing their budget up to $6 million. That doesn’t even account for any changes in pension reform.
Strang adds, “either way the board will be approving a budget that is not accurate because we don’t have all of our information and we will be asking you to amend the budget.”
For that reason, Strang planned the budget conservatively, estimating $316.5 million in projected revenue and $319.3 million in expenditures.
The 2016 fiscal draft will be presented again on July 13 and require final approval on August 17.
