The District 200 Finance Advisory Committee hosted its second meeting on Aug. 5. The committee was formed by the school board to examine the high school's fund balance and whether it's the proper amount for OPRF, and to make a recommendation to the board last this year as to its best use.

Committee members on Monday continued to get up to speed about school finance laws and policies. They also reviewed the controversial "phase-in" of the high school's 2002 referendum monies that upset many property owners. The group also reviewed and revised its remaining meeting schedule and agendas.

For the next meeting on Aug. 19, the committee will start to dig into to some specific financial issues. For one, the state's pension reform efforts and how that will impact school districts, said committee Chair Jeff Weissglass. The committee will also look at the school's financial projection models, including how enrollment and salaries impact that model, Weissglass said.
