MELIN: An update on Greater Clark’s budget


Another expenditure area under review is health care and, in fact, because of employees switching from name brand to generic prescriptions, pharmacy costs for the month of January have been reduced by about $20,000. We are also reducing expenditures in our tax-supported funds, including another $81,000 in administrative reductions. In total, we have reduced our administrative costs by approximately $730,000.

Once we finalize our total expenditure reductions, we will make a presentation at a public board meeting as well as communicate with our stakeholders through other media. Our goal is to maintain a high quality of service to our students, while also being fiscally responsible to our taxpayers.
