Confusion in School Budgets

Why aren’t school budgets easier to understand? That’s what Mike Hall asks:

Hall found out that USD 501 Topeka wants to increase the mill rate, and that set him to trying to figure out the district’s budget. That hasn’t been easy.

“I’ve spent four days now collecting information from Hixon, from Shawnee County Clerk Cynthia Beck, from the Kansas State Department of Education and from the school district’s Web site. I spent 45 minutes with Jones in his office and exchanged e-mailed questions and answers with him. I still can’t figure out school district budgeting.”
