. . . exceeding forecasts by half a million at the Cherry School site:
Although the district as a whole remains under budget, the Cherry School exceeded its construction budget. Costs for that project are expected to total $10.479 million. The school’s original budget was $9.9 million, but was later supplemented with an additional $400,000 from the district’s contingency fund. Even with the additional money, Anderson said the project is expected to be $179,178 over budget.
