Presenting JICHS monthly Financial Statement.

Updates from Finance meeting 10/12/2020


Page 1:

  • Student Fees was decreased $50,000.00. Monthly averages for Bus and Parking fees were pulled since 7/1/2018 and the annual amount was decreased by 33 and 66 percent respectively. This resulted in a $43,876.80 annual total decrease. Mr. Drake proposed decreasing to 180k during finance meeting which was very close to this number so the adjustment was made to decrease to 180k total.
  • Other Pupil Income was decreased $150,000.00. Monthly Averages for Athletic Gate Receipts was pulled since 7/1/2018 and the annual amount was decreased by 80 percent resulting in $105,608.17 of the decrease. The other $45,0000 decrease was a result of taking out the larger field trip revenue which is going to be almost non-existent during COVID-19.
  • Rentals was decreased $18,000. The Crossroads Community Church typically rented JICH space for $1,610 per month which is currently happening as a result of COVID-19.



Page 8:

  • Athletic/Field Trip Student Transportation and travel  was decreased for a combined $45,000. There will be less Field Trip and Athletic travel this year with all the restrictions in place. This decrease also offsets some of the decrease in revenue for these same items.
  • Athletic Other Purchased Services was decreased $35,000. Monthly averages were pulled since 7/1/2018 and the annual amount for athletic security and officials was decreased by 50% to arrive at the budget change.
