School District Finances Healthy, Auditor Finds

Reviewing and approving the district’s annual financial report topped the agenda at the West Washington County Unit District 10 School Board meeting last Thursday.

Auditors gave the district the highest rating possible, and the district’s finances were in a healthy position.

Superintendent Scott Fuhrhop says that the evidence-based funding model from the state has meant more money for the district, but that he expects cost shifting of pensions from the state to local districts to change things in the near future.

“We are in a very good position right now, but all signs are pointing to changes in pension funding that will affect local budgets in the next couple of years,” Fuhrhop said.
