MAPS budget story corrected

It was incorrectly stated in Friday’s EagleHerald titled “MAPS board receives audit review” that the Menominee Area Public School District is in deficit. According to Superintendent John Mans, the $19 million figure cited in the Friday article is representative of unfunded liability funds for future teacher retirements, not the district fund balance as a whole. He said this is an issue most small school districts face and if misread could certainly give the appearance of a deficit in any small district.

Mans said the district’s fund balance is currently at $1,391,700 and is not in a state of deficit.
