The Eastern Pulaski School Corporation ended 2015 in good financial shape. Superintendent Dan Foster says all of their funds were in the black, and they had about 7 percent of appropriations remaining. As a result, Foster says they were able to move $600,000 into their rainy day fund.
Board members took steps Monday to reduce their 2017 transportation levy and shift that money into their capital projects fund. It will be used for maintenance projects like parking lot repairs and sealing and roof repairs. Eastern Pulaski is in the midst of a $14 million, bond financed corporation-wide renovation project now. Foster says that work is on track to be finished this fall.
