The Battle Creek Public Schools announced on Monday that for the first time in over a decade, the district operated within a balanced budget.

According to a release, Superintendent Kim Carter presented to the Battle Creek Board of Education an independent audit that shows resources were added to the general fund for their 2017 budget year, as opposed to being depleted. The BCPS says that due to this gain, made through budget adjustments in recent years, the Michigan Department of Treasury has removed the district from their Early Warning list.

The district also says that this balanced budget is not as a result of the recent $51 million grant from the WK Kellogg Foundation, as that grant money can’t be put toward the district’s general fund.
