The school district predicts a $2 million dollar surplus from mineral leases along with $1.7 million in state cuts. The district proposes putting two-thirds of the surplus in reserve, and one-third into the general fund. What do you think of the proposal?

Reserves are a good idea, but two-thirds is too much. 47 votes
