N.J.-S.P. School Board Approves Budget Transfers

North Judson-San Pierre Admin buildingThe North Judson-San Pierre School Board transferred a few dollars in their fiscal year budget on Tuesday night.

According to the discussion, certain dollar figures were reallocated to help with the school corporation’s operating.

Superintendent Lynn Johnson says the Board considered the move which has been talked about in the past.

“We are going to move some funds from transportation into the general fund,” says Johnson.

Reasons for the transfer were not made clear during Tuesday night’s meeting. 20-percent will be allocated in the general fund for the high school principal to take over transportation duties from the transportation fund.

Other transfers include 10-percent for elementary, middle, high school assistant for transportation, discipline, and bus duties. 5-percent of funds for treasurer for food service director will be transferred into an accounts payable fund.

Johnson says the move needed additional review.

“Since that does require transferring from one account to another, I’ll need board approval for that,” says Johnson.

Totals figures transferred add up to about $65-thousand. The North Judson-San Pierre School Board approved the transfers unanimously.
