Thanks to federal funds through COVID, Clinton Schools ended up with a bigger profit margin than expected for the fiscal year that wraps up on June 31.
That's according to Assistant Superintendent Drew Goebel who presented the Clinton Board of Education with the amended budget at the Tuesday night Board of Education meeting.
According to Goebel, operations and maintenance are where they saw the most impactful results of inflation. However, he points out, they still have a healthy fund balance for those things.
Goebel reminds next year, the free lunch program that was offered the last two years goes away, so money for that program will not be coming in any longer, and students that do not qualify for free or reduced lunches will have to go back to paying for their meals.
