District Five approves $69.4 million budget for 2014-2015
The District Five Board of Trustees unanimously approved a $69.4 million budget for the 2014-2015 fiscal year. The budget reflects a 5.8 percent increase but does not include a millage increase for the fifth consecutive year.

Other highlights include:

• 16.3 new positions to accommodate growth in the district

• More than $1.3 million marked for technology in the classroom

• Facility upgrades on multiple campuses

Nearly 78 percent of this year’s budget is allocated to employee salaries and health benefits.

Superintendent Dr. Scott Turner expressed approval of the budget, saying, “Despite dealing with fixed resources on the state level, District Five continues to expand programs, increase school technology, and keep class sizes at appropriate levels for our students. We’ve done all this while remaining committed to spending tax dollars wisely, and not raising the millage rate in our community for the 5th year in a row.”
