The Newcomerstown Board of Education approved an updated five-year financial forecast for the school district at their regular monthly meeting May 18.

That forecast shows the district to be "fiscally sound" for the next two school years, 2090-2010 and 2010 to 2011.

"Based on the information available right now, we are fiscally sound for this year and the next school year," Treasurer Dan Stocker said. "After that, it gets a little concerning."

Stocker said the numbers and figures are constantly changing, as well as the allotment of money the district will be given may change also. Until those figures are known, the financial forecast is just that -- an estimate.

In other business approved by the board:

* Acceptance of donation from the Moose Lodge 1337 for $159.26.
