The beginning of July brought a new fiscal year to the Dixon Unified School District (DUSD). The onset of the new fiscal year required the Board to approve the 2015-2016 Annual Budget at our June 25th meeting. The Budget is our spending blueprint for the next 12 months, and will be updated regularly as state and other revenues come in. DUSD budget highlights include:
•Total 2015-16 District revenue from state, local and other sources: $31,643,569.00
•Average Daily Attendance (this is not a total student count, but a count based attendance): 3,198. It is important to note that state funding is based on ADA and not on enrollment.
•Salaries and benefits for DUSD employees make up 79.9% of general fund budget expenditures.
