The Shakopee School District had a flub in their budget, to the tune of almost $5 million:
According to Thompson’s email, the district found a $4.5 million discrepancy during a yearly financial review.
Finance Director Mike Burlager mentioned the error during the school board’s Truth in Taxation meeting Dec. 12, but did not mention the exact amount. Soon after, Thompson mentioned a $5 million shortfall.
Of course, if it were a charter school, the state would have SWAT team locking the doors by now.
