The Frontier School board approved the 2014-15 budget with no change in the mill levy during a special meeting, Thursday, Aug. 14.
The adopted budget includes a general fund of a little over $1 million and a total of all funds just over $1.46 million. The district’s property tax requirement is $393,501 and the mill levy is 119.87.
The budget reflects about a $10,000 increase over last year’s budget because of an increase in enrollments.
“I knew that in the middle of March that it was going to be that,” superintendent Christine Eggar said.
In other business, the trustees approved the admission of a first grade student from outside the district, bringing the total number of first-graders to 18.
The board also approved Ruth Garfield as a substitute.
In another matter, the board approved the state correction plan for special education deviation.
