The district says they have lost 2.1 million in funding since 2011. Yet, the total revenue for the district has remained fairly constant: Total revenue for FY 2009 $17,559,667, 2010 $18.398,709, 2011 $17,618,845, 2012 $17,743,145, 2013 $18,346,409, 2014 $17,825,625. These numbers come directly from the state audits of the district for years 2009-13, year 2014 is from the districts 5 year budget from the ODE's web site.
