NJ-SP School Board Reviewing Revenue Figures, Improving Policies

North Judson-San Pierre Admin buildingThe North Judson-San Pierre School Board will be setting the table for future budget discussions.

At their meeting tonight, Board members will learn more about how the latest decisions in the state legislature will affect their fiscal year budget. Superintendent Lynn Johnson says she hopes to explain the new revenue figures to the board.

Thoughts right now indicate North Judson-San Pierre schools will see reduced funding in the next fiscal year budget. The school corporation is considering a referendum to increase the area’s property tax levy to make up for the funding gap.

Rural school districts – which are generally losing population their population base – are considered likely to see reduced funding.

The Board will also take action to revise the school corporation’s acceptable use policy. The AUP, as it’s called, is designed to protect students and staff from viewing inappropriate content, as well as specify proper care for the equipment for school owned technology.

Exactly which revisions are being made will become clear during tonight’s meeting.

Board members will meet at 7:00 p.m. at the NJ-SP Administration Building.
