"That's building and associated costs for the additions and the site work," said Bob Ciserella, the district's assistant superintendent for finance, facilities and operations.

Ciserella said they are transferring $3 million from the district's working cash, as well as $4 million from the general fund, into the capital projects fund to complete projects. In the budget, salaries take up 45 percent of expenditures, but the next largest chunk -- 20 percent -- will be for equipment/capital projects.

Meanwhile, 85 percent of the district's revenues are expected to come from property taxes, while the rest will be provided by state and federal funding, as well as other local revenue.
