Action Item: Fiscal Year 2018 Budget

Board Members adopted the Fiscal Year 2018 Budget as presented. There are two documents that comprise the FY18 Budget:

  1. FY18 Budget – provides the Board and community with information regarding key budget assumptions and a detailed summary of revenues and expenditures.
  2. FY18 ISBE Budget Form – the Board’s official Fiscal Year 2018 Budget, which must be submitted to the County and State and published on the District’s website.

If you have questions about the budget, contact Chief Financial Officer, Tony Inglese.

Discussion Item: Facilities Commission

Board Members continued discussion on the formation of a Facilities Commission to develop long-term plans (exceeding five years), which, in turn, would guide the Capital Projects Committee. This discussion is still in play and will be back on an October meeting agenda.

Celebration: GMS Hurricane Relief Efforts

As Hurricane Harvey was unfolding, Grace McWayne School 5th grader Bradyn Martinson decided he wanted to help the hurricane victims. He launched a schoolwide fundraising campaign that raised $1,000 for the American Red Cross in just seven days. Board Members celebrated Bradyn’s initiative and the entire school’s commitment to helping others in need. Full story >
