Tecumseh School Board approves 2016-17 budget of $27,048,871

The Tecumseh Board of Education last week approved the district’s budget during a special meeting. The district started its fiscal year on July 1 with plans to tap into the fund balance if needed.

Projected revenues are $26,375,274 while expenditures are conservatively estimated to be $673,597 more. No cuts will be made to personnel or staff. The $5 million fund equity gives the district leeway, but finance director Judy Pfund said less may be borrowed from the fund. She said more students may be enrolled, which will increase revenue or some programs may not use the full amount budgeted, which will decrease expenditures.

Actual revenue will not be known until the fall student count, but the budget was built on the estimate that 2,850 students will attend Tecumseh Public Schools in the fall, which is neither an increase nor decrease in students from the 2015-16 school year. The count does not include special education students.

Incremental salary increases, as approved by the board in a three-year contract with teachers in 2014, are part of the budget.

As the fiscal year proceeds, revisions to the budget will determine how much of the fund balance will be used.
