The Estherville Lincoln Central School Board approved a $33,874,000 budget for the 2018-19 school year at its regular meeting on Monday.

The budget includes a property tax levy of $16.59 per $1,000 of assessed property valuation, which is less than the amount published.

ELC superintendent Tara Paul explained that Iowa Department of Management typically makes adjustments after all school districts have submitted their respective budgets and the rate can change a little bit. Estimated revenue from property tax is $6,172,232.

No one attended the public hearing on the budget prior to the regular board meeting.

The school board also approved the calendar for the 2018-19 school year. In-take conferences for grades kindergarten through eighth grade are Aug. 23 with all students in class on Aug. 24.

The holiday break is Dec. 24-31 and Jan 1-4 with classes resuming Jan. 7. The last day for seniors is May 17 with graduation on May 19. The end of the fourth quarter and second semester is May 24.
