Knox School Board to Hold Budget Hearing Tonight

The Knox School Board will hold a public hearing on its 2019 budget proposal tonight.

A major change in next year’s budget is the consolidation of four of the school corporation’s funds into two, as part of Indiana’s overhaul of the school funding structure. The General Fund will be replaced with the Education Fund. The Capital Projects, Transportation, and Bus Replacement funds will be combined into an Operations Fund.

The Knox Community School Corporation’s 2019 budget proposal calls for an Education Fund of just over $9.1 million and an Operations Fund of more than $6.4 million. Comments will also be taken tonight on the corporation’s capital projects and bus replacement plans.

In addition to the budget hearing, a few personnel items will also be presented for the board’s approval. Tonight’s Knox School Board meeting starts at 6:30 at the Knox Schools Administrative Office.
