Superintendent Schiltz reported on the unencumbered cash balances as of June 26, 2019, in the various funds and discussed the proposed transfers of funds.  He also indicated that, just as last year, Kansas schools will not receive the final payment of state aid for the month of June until sometime in early July, but the law requires that this July payment be recorded as a June 30th receipt; so this final state aid payment, a total of $119,046.00 plus a supplemental general state aid payment of $7,008.00 for St. Francis USD 297, already shows in the reports being reviewed at this meeting.  Following further review of the year’s financial situation and the effects on various funds, Superintendent Schiltz recommended that $327,570.00 $327,201.45 be transferred from the General Fund to various funds as follows:  $130,000.00 to Special Education; $16,553.00 to Career & Postsecondary Education; $81,563.00 to Food Service; $19,009.00 $18,628.63 to Professional Development; $65,034.00 $65,045.82 to At-Risk (K-12); and $15,411.00 to Bilingual Education.  Superintendent Schiltz also recommended $63,613.00 $58,002.73 be transferred from the Supplemental General Fund (L.O.B.) to various funds as follows:  $6,364.59 to Career & Postsecondary Education; $51,083.00 to At-Risk; $4,409.86 from Contingency Reserve to Supplemental General Fund; and $4,965.00 to Bilingual Education.  Following review, Mila Bandel moved to approve all of the transfers as listed above and to grant authority to the administration and school auditors to make necessary adjustments to these transfer-amounts, with such adjustments being contained as part of the official minutes of this June 27, 2019, meeting and of the Audit Report.  The motion was seconded by Chris Bracelin and carried.
