How Will ISD 281 Budgets Change Next Year?

During their Jan. 7 school board meeting, Robbinsdale Area School board members discussed general fund budget revenue and expenditure assumptions.

In a document prepared by Jeff Priess, Executive Director of Business Services, numbers show that district revenues and expenditures are expected to increase next year.

For the 2013-2014 school year, Robbinsdale Area Schools is expecting to see a revenue increase of $70,628 from local tuition, fees and admissions.

Revenues from Minnesota’s basic general education aid, a primary source of funding, are expected to increase by $849,827. Property taxes will also increase, providing additional dollars.

When it comes to expenditures, the district is preparing to spend more on employee salaries and benefits. In comparison with the 2012-2013 school year, the general fund expenditure budget is estimated to increase by $2,043,293. In total, the district will spend an estimated $138,159,819 during the 2013-2014 school year.

School board documents show that all support staff will remain in place unless there is an unforeseen loss in revenue.
