School district survives fiscal shortage

Local News

GIBSON CITY, Ill. (WCIA) — Despite the state’s budget crisis, one school board says it looks like it will finish the fiscal year with a balanced budget.

Officials at GCMS say they did it with only about 85% of the money the state owes them.

The superintendent says they kept the lack of a state budget in mind when they planned a year ago and made sure to only spend on necessities.

The fiscal year ends June 30, so the state still has two days to pay schools. The GCMS superintendent says he plans to go into the next fiscal year with the same strategy.
