The Manistee Intermediate School District serves 5,803 children within the county.  There are four public school districts, two public academies, two non-public schools and one community college in our service area.  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 

Operating Expenditures Like any organization, the Manistee Intermediate 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.

Section 5 – Employee Compensation Information

All employees of the Manistee Intermediate School District are categorized by classification of position held. All classifications are established according to demands of the position, level of responsibility, job functions performed, credentials and skills required, etc. Each classification falls into at least one established salary schedule, which takes into account such factors as seniority in position or in similar positions, comparison to similar jobs elsewhere in the community, cost of living factors, etc. The Manistee Intermediate School District Board of Education determines matters related to school employees including pay and benefits. 

This report requires listing the Superintendent and employees with salaries over $100,000.
