2014 Fiscal Report
Our Chief Financial Officer briefed the Members on the Fiscal Report for April. Extensive spending controls continue for all funds. General Fund spending reflects the amounts appropriated in the 2014-15 enacted budget. General Fund accounts are in structural balance. The Tenured Teacher Hearings (TTH) account’s prior year deficit will be fully paid in 2014-15. Special Revenue accounts are all in structural balance on a current year basis and the accumulated negative balance in the Cultural Education Account is being reduced by approximately $700,000.
