Joplin School Board approves $121 million budget

JOPLIN, Mo. – The Joplin School Board Tuesday night approved the budget for the next fiscal year.

That budget includes about $121 million in expenses and $91.9 million dollars in revenue. The biggest increase in expenditures are the bonds for the new Dover Hill Elementary School and the additions at Kelsey Norman.

$26.4 million was approved by voters for the school projects, but only about two million of that was spent in the last fiscal year.
