The final budget numbers for the 2007-08 school year should be favorable, according to an update given to the New Prague Area School Board by the district's finance director Dan Pyan.

Pyan, speaking at the July 28 school board meeting, said that the preliminary numbers indicate the district spent $373,000 less than had originally been budgeted for the year that ended June 30. That and some higher than expected revenues resulted in an unreserved fund balance of $542,000, which is 1.8 percent of the budget.
