The Dieterich Unit 30 School Board was presented with a amended budget by Superintendent Cary Jackson at their meeting held Monday. The proposed changes to the budget are required to produce a more realistic financial picture of the 2016 Fiscal Year. The proposed amended budget is now on display in the District’s office, where it will remain until approval next month.
In other action the Board approved improvements to the District’s softball field. The improvements will be funded by the Dieterich Sportsbackers, and will cost approximately $30,500. Upgrades will be made to the backstop, dugouts, and fencing. A new pavilion will also be constructed.
The Board also approved Doug Baxter as their representative on the Eastern Illinois Area Special Education Board.
