The Dunkirk School District fell well within budget for the 1996-97 school year, according to auditor Louann Laurito-Baghat.

Ms. Laurito-Baghat delivered the report to the Board of Education Thursday night.

The district finished the fiscal year with a fund balance of $507,581.

For 1996-97, revenues were down by 6 percent, but expenditures increased by less than 1 percent, she said. The difference was made up from money from the fund balance, which had been $1.3 million.

In another matter, Lt. Col. Charles Chasler of the Junior Reserve Officers Training Program and Michael Riley of the Boy Scouts of America asked for board approval of the High Adventure Explorers Post.

The first group, which has seven students, would be sponsored by the Dunkirk Moose Lodge 89. Board members will consider action during another meeting.

In other business:

Richard Clifton, director of special projects, told the board that the district is applying for a state grant for additional personnel for the program for students with limited English proficiency. Clifton praised the board for providing resources for the students in the English as a Second Language program.

The board will be asked to approve a list of volunteers for the federally supported Goals 2000 program.

The board will consider the creation of two part-time temporary aide positions for non-public schools at the Oct. 21 meeting.
