2021-22 Budget Foundation Aid as a part of State Aid 

The  2021-22 Budget was initially presented in March 2021 and included information on how the district intended to utilize additional State if it were to become available.  The plan for spending any additional aid was discussed at Administrative meetings as well as publicly held Board meetings where the budget was discussed in detail.  On March 18, 2021 the budget presentation included a slide that indicated the district’s priorities on a slide labeled “Additional Considerations” depending on available State Aid.  When the state budget was adopted in April,  statewide allocations were made and the District was allotted an additional $760,214 in Foundation Aid for 2021-22 School Year as part of its State aid allocation.

The following is a list of items that were restored  after the public meeting and based on the amount of Foundation aid that was restored.
