GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) - Campbell County’s public school system will likely have to dip into its cash reserves in two years if trustees vote to open a second high school in Gillette.

District business manager Don Dihle says expenses will exceed revenue by about $1 million by 2017.

Dihle included a conservative estimate of increased student enrollments.

According to the Gillette News Record (https://tinyurl.com/q43jwpy ), enrollments determine the amount of money the district receives from the state for schools each year. If more students enroll than predicted, it can drive up the revenue.
