Approve Budget Amendment – Increased the Instructional Programs from $4,636,320 to $4,800,000; Support Line to $2,800,000 and the Non-Instruction to $450,000. The reasons for the increases for Instructional and Support would be increased expenditures due to ESSER funds and the Non-Instruction, nutrition fund, increased meals served due to free meals. By doing this it does NOT increase the tax rate.
