The Onekama Consolidated School District serves 416 children in kindergarten through the 12th grade.  In addition we offer preschool, childcare, and adult and community education services.  Our budget is adopted by our publicly elected board of education no later than June 30 of each year.  Like other schools in the State of Michigan, our budget is based on our best guess of what amount of per pupil funding the state will provide.

Section 2 - District and Personnel Expenditures
Current Operating Expenditures 2012-13

Like any organization, the Onekama Consolidated School District has a variety of expenditures including utilities, fuel for buses, technology, facility maintenance, insurance, personnel, and office supplies.  Public schools are unique in that they have boards of education that control the expenditure (and receipt) of school funds.  The school board members are state officers who carry out the state's educational obligations at the local level and they have the ultimate responsibility for school operations.  Schools also pay for classroom supplies, specialized services for students with special needs, and many other instruction-related items.

Personnel Expenditures

Because schools are a service industry, the largest share of every school's expenditures are salaries and benefits. Retirement costs are state mandated and controlled at the state level. Schools have increased co-pays for health insurance and reduced benefit programs for health insurance for staff. Insurance costs include health, dental, vision, and life. All other personnel benefit costs include annuities and car allowances.
