Enrollment jumps help bottom line in Willmar, Minn., School District


WILLMAR — Rising enrollment has boosted budget projections for the Willmar School District.

The district expects to receive more than $700,000 in additional per-student revenue because of the additional students.

The School Board approved a revised 2012-13 budget at its meeting Monday. The budget revision projects revenue of $44.2 million and expenditures of $44.8 million in the general fund, which pays day-to-day operating expenses.
