The GFW School Board heard some positive news on January 11 at its regular monthly meeting. Layne Kockelman, an auditor for ADBO Eick & Meyers, reported that the downward trend of the District’s General Fund Balance has leveled off and is starting up. Kockelman showed that from fiscal year 2016 to 2017, the District saw a large dip in its General Fund balance due to the budget staying at the $10 million mark and the average daily attendance dropping by 35 students. The cost per student dropped about $400 in 2020 as the budget balance leveled off.
