Motion by Sidwell, second by Zeeb, to adopt the FY20 Tentative Budget as presented and set the Budget Hearing for September 16, 2019, at 6:45 p.m. in the Pocahontas School Library. Discussion took place regarding the tentative budget. Changes are still being made to the budget, so what the Board will approve in September will be slightly different from what is proposed now. The budget currently shows a deficit of over $400,000. Part of this is due to the fact that the District paid the state back unused grant money from the previous year KRP Grant, as well as increases in salaries and benefits due to the new certified contract. Dr. Olson shared that this budget is conservative on the revenue side and aggressive on the expenditure side, so depending on the number of payments from the state, the budget could be balanced in the end. Roll call vote: Ephron, yes; Sidwell, yes; Wall, yes; Workman, yes; Zeeb, yes. Motion carried 5-0.

ADJOURN

Motion by Wall, second by Sidwell, that the meeting be adjourned at 6:25 p.m. Voice vote. Motion carried 5-0.
