The Byron school board unanimously approved a $14.8 million budget for the 2012-2013 school year Dec. 18. The board also approved a 2.09 percent levy increase.
The final budget is based on an average daily attendance of roughly 1,854 students districtwide.
"We're in a very good position financially," said Jennifer Walsh, the district's business manager.
For revenue, the district is budgeting a total increase of $304,826 from the preliminary budget, which is partially because of an increase in enrollment but also because of increased medical assistance revenue and increased crop proceeds.
For expenditures, the budget shows a net addition of $146,810 in salaries and benefits that include one full-time custodian, three regular education paraprofessionals, four special education paraprofessionals an early childhood special education teacher, special education coverage for Rochester Montessori and a registered school nurse.
The expenditures also include an increase of $152,885 in non payroll unassigned expenses, including funds for medical assistance expenses, biology equipment, football helmets and reconditioning per new regulations, bus routing software, ball field dirt, middle school student chairs and a finish line system for the track.
