At their June 23 meeting, the Stillwater Area School Board reviewed and voted on the preliminary budget for the 2022-2023 school year. The roughly $147 million budget passed with a unanimous 5-0 vote (board members Tina Riehle and Anne Porbeni were not present).

Director of Finance John Thein sounded a positive note as he spoke about the preliminary budget before the board, noting that expenditures and revenue are level, both at around $147 million. As a point of reference, Thein compared that to the St. Paul School District, which recently passed a roughly $900 million budget, which was offset by only $600 million in revenue.
