    Debt Service (December 2017)

    The Debt Service Fund is primarily used to pay principal and interest on the District’s outstanding bond indebtedness. Revenues are mainly generated from the I&S (Interest and Sinking) portion of school taxes. Revenues in this fund are restricted in their use, and can only be used for debt-related expenditures.

    Food Service (December 2017)

    The Food Service Fund is where all revenues and expenditures are recorded that relate to the nutrition needs of our students. The MISD contracts with ARAMARK to run its food service operations.

    ARAMARK serves breakfast and lunch every school day at each school cafeteria. The Food Service operation is an approximate $2.5 million program.

    General Fund (December 2017)

    General Fund expenditures are for all of the day-to-day operations of the District, for example: salaries of teachers, classroom aides, bus drivers, and maintenance workers; insurance; utilities; supplies; fuel for vehicles; lease payments; etc.
