The Washington Community School District exceeded its authorized budget for the 2007-2008 school year by more than $124,000, and violated Iowa law. As a result, the Department of Management is reducing the district's budget for the 2008-2009 school year. Superintendent Dave Sextro says he's confident they won't overspend their budget again. School board members are expected to pass a 23-million dollar budget at tonight's meeting. It starts at 7:00 in the adminstration building.
