District 1 Trustees Approve Budget Amendments

Sheridan County School District 1 trustees approved seven budget amendments in their meeting Tuesday night.

But District Business Manager Jeremy Smith said the overall budget that the school board adopted in July hasn't changed.

Trustees in July approved a budget of just over $15 million for the year. Approval of the amendments followed a public hearing, but no one from the public spoke either for or against the amendments.

Also at Tuesday's meeting, District Superintendent Marty Kobza (KOBE-zuh) said although there were requests for a wrestling program at Tongue River High School, no wrestling program will be added this year.

Kobza said five students expressed a sincere interest in having a wrestling program, but that isn't enough under the standard that the district has adopted for adding a program. However, he said, the request might need to be revisited in future.

Trustees in other action approved two policies on first reading and seven on second and final reading. Trustees were presented with three other policies for review, but no action was taken.

Kobza said an accreditation team will visit the district next month, and the team members will want to meet with the board of trustees as part of their visit. He said the team will visit each school building in the district, which includes schools in Ranchester, Dayton and Big Horn.
