Back To Front Page

Residents of the Duneland School Corporation can make their concerns, complaints, suggestions or praises be heard on the $64.4 million advertised schools budget for 2014.

The Duneland School Board will hold a public hearing at the Duneland Administration Center, 601 West Morgan Ave. in Chesterton, at 6 p.m. Wednesday.

School districts in Indiana are required by law to hold a public hearing before submitting their proposed budgets to the state for certification.

Legal notices for the schoolís advertised levied funds and the state-supported General Fund appeared in the Chesterton Tribune on Sept. 4 and Sept. 11.

Making up the advertised budgets is $34.6 million for the General Fund, $5.7 million for the Referendum Fund, $7.4 million for Debt Service, $1.6 million for School Pension Debt, $10.5 million for Capital Projects Fund, $3.9 million for Transportation, and $667,000 for Bus Replacement. Duneland School administrators are advertising the amounts greater than the anticipated levy to achieve the highest amount of funding available.

Also on Wednesday, appointments will be made for Dunelandís Materials Reconsideration Committee.

Schools Superintendent Dave Pruis will give comments on activities happening in Duneland.

Assistant Superintendent Monte Moffett will present the latest personnel report.
