Bedford Out of Deficit!

At the Committee of the Whole Meeting on Thursday, October 30, 2014, Deborah A. Sabo, CPA, from the firm of Cooley, Heil, Wohlgamuth & Carlton, reviewed the audit completed for Bedford Public Schools with the administration and school board members. The board voted to approve the audit at the Board of Education meeting on Thursday, November 6, 2014 and it became official...we are out of deficit!

The district finished the year ending June 30, 2014 with revenues of $38,677,378 and expenditures of $37,825,062. Including some additional transfer funds of $45,774, the final audit showed a positive fund balance of $708, 458. At the beginning of the year, Bedford was in deficit by $189,632.

"This is a significant achievement, " remarked Superintendent, Mark Kleinhans, "for a district to come out of deficit earlier than state projections. Especially when, in this day and age, districts are still going into deficit." His celebration is tempered by a cautionary observation, that while the district now has a positive fund balance of 1.83%, it is far from a recommended balance of 10% of the revenues.

 

“I commend the Bedford Schools Board of Education and administration for your work to make the tough decisions to eliminate the district’s budget deficit. Even though the decisions are not easy and a sacrifice for many, they will help the district bring itself back into balance in order to move forward in a positive direction.  It is my hope that the incoming legislature will support increases to school funding in the next budget cycle,”  said Mike Flanagan, State Superintendent
