Board members approve budget for 2020-2021 school year

Pattonville Board of Education on June 9 approved a $100 million operating budget for the 2020-2021 school year. For the first time in seven years, the district will likely have a net deficit of $1.4 million due to lower than anticipated revenues resulting from COVID-19 impacts on the economy. The deficit will be offset by one-time federal relief funds from the CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security) Act and savings in the 2019-2020 budget that will be placed in the district’s reserves. The majority of the deficit is due to state revenues that have declined sharply during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, investment income is declining due to drops in current interest rates, and reduced income is anticipated from Pattonville programs that depend on student participation, such as preschool and food service.
