School Gets Good Financial News

Income For District Up By $155,000, Treasurer Reports

The Sulphur Board of Education members received good news of the financial status of the schools at a final year-end board meeting last Thursday evening.

School Treasurer David Harp told the members the income for the district was up by approximately $155,000.00 for the year and that the board can expect more than a $2.3 million dollar carry-over when the fiscal year begins (July 1). When asked why the increase in revenue, Harp told members the district received a large mid-term adjustment in state aide and the district being good stewards accounted for the increase. Harp told members the building fund account was down.

Bids on a new 14-passenger non-CDl bus were opened at the meeting. Three bids were received and board members approved purchasing the bus from Summitt of Oklahoma City in the amount of $57,770.00. Other bids received were from Ross Transportation of Oklahoma City in the amount of $58,803.00 and Trans-Tech Bus Sales of Warwick, NY in the amount of $55,577.00. The Trans-Tech bid did not meet all the criteria requested in the bid.
