Superintendent Kevin Borg

As I shared with you in February, the projected increase to state funding for next year is not keeping up with inflationary increase to expenses; therefore, the Westonka School Board set a goal of $325,000 in increases of revenues or reductions of expenditures for the 2016-2017 budget. On April, 11 the board approved the expenditure reduction/increased revenue plan.

Please read the Borg Report to learn more about budget planning for 2016-2017.
 
Sincerely,

Kevin Borg
