Bryson ISD adds to fund balance
BRYSON — The school here will be able to add an estimated $635,000 to its fund balance heading into its 2016-17 school year, board members found out during Monday night’s regular meeting.
Superintendent David Stout said the district is expecting $3,384,988 in its fund balance to start next year, thanks to good investments.
Members of the One Act Play group that won State were honored at the meeting as well. Play Director Christy Stout said she was super proud of the entire group. She said three of the group members have been offered full college scholarships, including housing.
She thanked the town of Bryson for all of its support of the kids, who would arrive home in the wee hours of the morning to supportive family and friends.
“In a lot of places you won’t get this kind of support unless it’s a sport,” Stout said. “Here in Bryson absolutely you can.”
Principal Eric Wilson said the final school enrollment to close the year was 268, or about 52 more students than the end of 2011-12 when the enrollment was 207 and he first started with the school.
