(CARSONVILLE-PORT SANILAC) — The Carsonville-Port Sanilac School Board last Thursday accepted the 2014-2015 audit as presented.

Auditors have recommended that the district have 10%-20% of expenditures as a General Fund balance. The 2014-2015 revenues were $4.3 million with expenditures at $4.2 million.

In other business, on a 5 to 1 vote, the board approved the high school class schedule/union agreement, which states that teachers can be assigned six preps for the 2015-2016 school year.
