Sturgeon Bay School District sought to budget under a worst-case scenario for 2020 and that means a lighter load for taxpayers. All options presented at Wednesday's board meeting were at least $250,000 below what the district has the authority to levy. Each alternative was defined by how many maintenance projects were to be undertaken in the coming year. Business Manager Jacob Holtz talks about how different circumstances of the actual budget are from the scenarios used to create it.
Instead the district got a 15 percent decrease in its health insurance and new money from the State. Holtz describes the situation as "healthy." The important thing to note is the district is not cutting back funding.
