This does not reflect the district's final budget or millage rate which will be approved on June 8, 2015.
By adopting this budget, the school board is requesting the ability to file for exceptions from the Act 1 index. The business office will begin calculations on exceptions upon approval of this preliminary budget and be prepared to submit those items under the Act 1 guidelines prior to March 5, 2015.
