N.J.-S.P. Board Authorizes Budget Submission


The North Judson-San Pierre School Corporation’s annual budget hearing before the Starke County Council will take place during their Sept. 12th meeting. The school board last week authorized the submission of the budget to the council for review. They also approved the advertisement of the 2017-19 capital projects and bus replacement plan in “The Leader” and the “Pulaski County Journal.” State law requires it be published in both counties since townships from both comprise the school corporation.

The corporation is looking to use money in its budget reserves to make upgrades to some aging infrastructure needs like boilers and lighting. In May the school board hired Indianapolis-based Performance Services to evaluate the middle/high school building and offer recommendations. Superintendent Dr. Annette Zupin told the school board last week they should have bids for the work by the end of the month and will be able to review bids in September. She adds several local contractors have submitted bids for the work.
