Public Notices in Today's Star -- Perry & Pike & Lawrence & Speedway Schools

Today's Indianapolis Star has public notices regarding 4 area school districts.

The annual financial report for Perry and Pike are up. These reports are a treasure trove of information. They include information for 2009-2010; the number and salary range of administrators, non-certified staff salary ranges, teacher salaries plus extra-curricular compensation, a comparison of the budgeted expenses and how much was actually spent, tax rates for 2009 and 2010, a list of all vendors who were paid over $2500, a list of debt, budgeted vs. actual revenues, and school enrollment by grade level.

There are also public notices of expected budgets and tax levies for Lawrence and Speedway school districts. Both also have their three year capital projects plan and their bus replacement plans.

The notice for MSD Lawrence Township, unfortunately, omitted the totals for expected budget. I added them up for myself, therefore. With an expected budget of $146,080,357, they note the maximum property tax levy would be $54,516,526, up from $42,914,503 this year.

The School Town of Speedway notice shows an estimated budget of $16,023,361, with a maximum property tax levy of $4,526,881, up from $2,202,088 this year.
