What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Based only on the General Fund Budget, the per pupil expenditures in the high school are $1,018, while in the elementary school the pupil expenditures are $692. Educational costs overall will increase, but the per pupil expenditures will go down due to the number of students involved. The total General Fund Budget for Poplar High School for the 1970-71 school term is $259, 362°00 compared to $244,045.00 for 1969-70. The difference in the budget totals represents a 6% in- crease, which in these spiraling cost times, is not bad. Let us examine what the Foundation Program Schedule will provide to ‘our schools with an ANB (Average Number Belonging) figure of 255.The founda- tion program will provide $139, 187 .16 and o permiss- ive amount of $34,796.79. As | mentioned before, the permissive amount is the funds the school can receive without a vote. We now know that the Foundation Program schedule will provide us budgeting power of $173,983.95. Becouse the General Fund Budget calls for $259,362.00, we know that the Foundation budgeting power will leave us $85, 378 .05 short in balancing the budget. in order to balance the budget the School Trustees ore call- ing for a special levy of 18 mills based on a $4,726.00 per mill figure. This added levy will allow the high school to continue worth- while continuing educational programs and to provide for the new educational ideas so necessary in keeping a school from sliding backward . Now that | have mentioned the budgetary needs, and cited the special levy figure, it is necessary to explain how the 874 funds will be used in the high school to decrease levies. Actually the process is the same as for the elemen- tary school. At the present time, we hove approximately $52,000.00 or Il mills worth of P.L. 874 money on de~- posit. First we must use the 874 money to decrease the permissinve levy of $34,796. 79 or 7.4 mills. After we have taken care of the per- missive we still have $17,203.21 or 3.6 mills of 874 money to apply against the special levies. By sub- tracting $17,203.21 from $85, 378 .05 we arrive at $68,174.84 or 14.4 mills. As | said in the resume’ on the elementary school, we are not voting the 14.4 POPLAR SHOPPER +special--we are still voting the 18 mifls. In any case, the P.L 874 funds have decreased our levies con- siderably, so when you get set to vote remember that the special levy is not all increases because the per- missive levy has been taken care as has a portion of the added levy .
