School budget revised

June 04, 1993|By Staff Report

The Board of Education yesterday approved the revision of category totals in its 1993-1994 budget, without changing the $120.7 million total approved by the county commissioners last month.

Board members voted unanimously to approve the budget during a brief meeting at the board's meeting room at 55 N. Court St.

The revision was sought because the schools will receive $437,000 less in state money than officials expected when the budget was written in January. In addition, the school system will get only half the $2.4 million that the board requested from the Carroll County commissioners for salary increases, said William Hyde, assistant superintendent for administration.

To offset those and other cuts, school officials are rolling over $1.2 million from the 1992-1993 budget and saving money by changing health insurance companies and leaving some administrative positions vacant, Mr. Hyde said.
