Anoka-Hennepin school board may boost staff, dip into reserve fund
Minnesota's largest district will spend nearly $30 million more than it did this year
June 28, 2022
The Anoka-Hennepin school board is considering a nearly $600 million spending plan for next year as Superintendent David Law wraps up his eight-year tenure leading the state's largest district.
District officials expect they'll spend about $596 million while bringing in a little more than $569 million in revenue. That means Anoka-Hennepin will draw about $27 million from its $166 million reserve fund balance to make up the difference.
Back in May, Chief Financial Officer Michelle Vargas told the school board that one-time expenses account for about $23 million of next year's spending. The school board did not vote on the budget by press time.
