LOYALTON – Upper Dauphin Area passed its 2016-2017 spending plan with a proposed $350,000 deficit being covered by the school district’s fund balance and spending cuts.
On a 6-2 vote, the board approved the $18,822,034 spending plan at its June 9 meeting. This budget comes with a $354,000 deficit, which will be covered up by a $169,000 payment from the unassigned fund balance and $185,000 taken from the PSERS reserve account.
Business manager Mary Bateman said the deficit was brought down by making $180,000 in spending cuts for supplies and eliminating two teaching positions in the elementary school.
