At a regular meeting on September 23, the Glenbrook High School District 225 Board of Education approved the budget for 2019-20. The budget projects $198,076,415 in expenditures. Included in the budget is the purposeful use of $9.1 million of existing reserves for a negotiated legal settlement and capital projects.
“This year’s budget represents our ongoing effort to provide excellent educational experiences for our students,” said Assistant Superintendent for Business Dr. R.J. Gravel. “The school district continues to demonstrate fiscal responsibility and commitment to fulfill its goals, as demonstrated by completing our three-year life safety capital projects plan this year. We continue to be on track to become debt free on January 1, 2028.”
The community was offered opportunities to provide input on the 2019-20 budget through its posting on the district website for the past two months and a public hearing, which was held on September 9.
