Davis School District

In its June 18 meeting, the Board of Education:

- Approved the proposed budget for the 1996-97 fiscal year. The 1995-96 budget was amended, mainly to reflect greater revenues such as an unexpected influx of $144,000 in federal impact aid. "That's the kind of thing you like to see come in the mail," said business manager Bruce Williams.

- Approved an agreement with the district's classified employees, including a 4.4 percent cost-of-living increase.

- Approved the sale of $12.4 million in tax anticipation notes, to be paid off within a year with tax revenues. The yearly procedure is necessary because the district needs to spend money before getting the bulk of tax revenues, said Superintendent Richard Kendell.
