Parkview School District budget
The district tried to "hold the line on spending" and reduced a secretarial position through retirement, business manager Dennis Birr said.
Other encouraging news for the district was an increase in enrollment after years of decline, he said.
"It was a pleasant surprise," he said.
This year's count showed four more students than last year for a total of 1,096 students. That number is by the state to determine state aid to the district as well as help set the revenue limit for Parkview.
This year: $14.15 million
Last year: $14.07 million
This year: $3.53 million
