NEH to host financial analysis

Northeast Hamilton CSD will host a public work session tonight (Monday, Oct. 7) at 6:30 p.m. in the NEH Elementary Media Center.

Larry Segal of Iowa School Finance Information Services will present a financial analysis of the NEH school district.

The meeting is open to the public.

NEH Administrative Assistant Dennis Bahr reported at the district’s September board meeting that NEH will be facing financial challenges in the future due to declining enrollment. In Iowa, school funding is based on enrollment numbers and since 2008, the NEH school district has lost an average of 13 students per year.
