School budget up for discussion again

The Peninsula School District is ready to move ahead with the upcoming school year’s budget. Before the adoption of the budget, however, the public is invited to learn more about the different funds.

The Peninsula School District will host a community forum will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Aug. 10 in the district board room.

The forum will be held in advance of the Aug. 13 school board meeting, when the budget will be adopted.

It is a presentation to inform the community on each of the fund budgets for the 2015-2016 year.

Those budgets include the general fund, capital projects fund, transportation vehicle fund, debt service fund and associated student body fund, said Karen Andersen, chief financial officer for the school district.

The budgeting process for the upcoming year is nearing completion. The community forum as well as the upcoming school board meeting will be held at the district office, 14015 62nd Ave., Gig Harbor.
