Let's assume the stats are accurate as Vyan presents them. Two things: 1. Vyan realizes he has a weak case and thus reverts to the sophomoric argument (as in high school sophomore) that he's not wrong because you can't prove that "black fathers have abandoned their children." He can still say black fathers aren't THAT absent. 2. Another look at the stats - 100 black kids, 100 white…

Wish you could set up a meeting with Boehner's new puppet and Flynn. I don't understand why anyone from Quincy can vote for LaHood and this should just prove it.

If your share and my share are the same of the debt in IL, (think 111 billion just for pension), then I move. Do you think your share went up a little? What if I move my business because I can? Think your share went up a little more? I think IL is losing population faster than most states, except illegals. They will certainly take up the slack of baby boomers and millionaires moving out. Only ones…

Quincy School District gets more bad budget news from the State

2 years, 8 months ago by Bob Gough

State cuts District's PPRT by more than $500,000

The Quincy School Board Finance Committee heard of some changes to the School District’s budget, which is scheduled to be voted on next week.

At this morning's meeting, Business Manager Joel Murphy said the State of Illinois has informed the District it will reduce its annual PPRT payment by $534,011, dropping the revenue to just under $3.9 million.

And the District is also seeing a $395,854 increase to employee benefits over the original estimates.

As a result, the District is cutting $364,005 from the Education Fund and from Capital. It is also reducing the amount budgeted for tuition and other payments by $230,566 and reducing the Operations and Maintenance budget by $207,215.

The district did receive an increase in federal revenues of $266,795, primarily from increases in Title I Funding.

The revisions put the 2012-2013 budget at $69.4 million. The budget will be voted on during a special Quincy School Board meeting at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, September 26 at the Board Office. The School Board will meet in regular session tomorrow at 7 p.m at Baldwin Intermediate School.

The District also has to put money into the self-insurance fund in order to keep the fund balance at $650,000, per the auditor’s recommendation. The Committee recommended moving $125,000 from the Education Fund, $50,000 from the Transportation Fund and $50,000 from the Building Fund to put the fund balance at that mark.

Murphy said the balances tend to be lower this time of year because many teachers wait until summer to have procedures done and they also get them in before October 1, which is the start of the new insurance cycle when deductibles reset.

The money is normally repaid from the self-insurance fund during the winter months.
