Spearfish School Board Green Lights Increased Budget

The Fiscal Year 2018 Budget for the Spearfish School District was recently approved by the Spearfish School Board, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. The FY18 general fund contribution increased slightly to $14.8 million from the previous year’s $14.6 million. The increased budget is a reflection of 83 new students to the district.

The capital outlay allocation also increased this year, at $4.1 million, over $3.2 million the previous year. Capital outlay funds are largely used for building maintenance. Special education increased to $3.1 million from the previous year’s $3.1 million.
