For Morris Area school district, deficit budget isn't all bad

Email News Alerts

The Morris Area school district will operate under a deficit budget next year for the first time in six years, but it's for good reason.


The district School Board approved a 2011-2012 budget with a deficit of an estimated $240,000 at its meeting this week.

But the good news is the additional spending will be targeted, in part, to adding another section of kindergarten and additional science and music staffing in the high school.
