Cuts still needed for deficit spending
Monday, Aug. 3, 2015 — 2015-2016 budget recently passed by the board of trustees shows the Westwood Unified School District to be in good standing, said Courtney Russell, assistant business manager.
“We are able to make all our expenditures,” she said.
While there is currently carryover that places the school district above the amount of funds it is allowed to have in reserve, the district continues to deficit spend. While the extra funds help to cover current costs that exceed revenues, they are finite.
