Warsaw School Budget Approved

Warsaw, IL – The Warsaw School District's budget for next year has been approved. The district's $3.7 million dollar spending plan is projected to end the year in the red. That includes a projected $30,000 deficit in the fund used to pay teacher salaries and daily operations. Superintendent Kim Schilson says the district has about $1,000,000 in reserves in the education fund and in working cash, so education will not be affected. She says staff was not reduced and class sizes will remain small.

Meanwhile, enrollment is up within the Warsaw School District. Superintendent Kim Schilson says more than 500 students are attending kindergarten through 12th grade. This is the first time Warsaw has cracked the 500 student mark since 2001. That includes more than 200 students in the elementary school.
