The Board of Education votes to approve the Notice of Hearing to Amend the Budget.

 

Wednesday evening at the USD 253 Board of Education (BOE) meeting, the Board voted to approve the Notice of Hearing to Amend the USD 253 2023-2024 Budget. The amended Budget results from the district’s Kansas State Department of Education Audit of the district’s enrollment. The district’s Audited weightings generated an increase of $594,278 from the original published budget for 2023-2024.  When weightings increase more than anticipated, the district must republish the budget to receive the additional funding. The Notice of Hearing to Amend the Budget will be published in the Emporia Gazette on April 27, 2024. Once the Notice of Hearing has been published for 10 days, a Hearing to approve the 2023-2024 Budget will be held. This  Hearing will be scheduled for the beginning of the May 8, Board of Education meeting.
