Hearing on school budget is rescheduled for Feb. 7

January 30, 2000

Carroll County school officials have rescheduled a Jan. 20 hearing on the superintendent's proposed budget that was canceled because of snow. The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Feb. 7 at Francis Scott Key High School near Uniontown.

The meeting is the first of three opportunities for the public to comment on Superintendent William H. Hyde's proposed 2000-2001 operating budget. A second hearing will be held at 7 p.m. Feb. 8 at Liberty High and a third, on a date not yet decided, will take place at Westminster High.

After the third hearing, the school board is expected to adopt a final version of the budget and send it to the Board of County Commissioners for review.

School officials originally said the Jan. 20 budget hearing would not be rescheduled, but announced the new date last week after reconsidering. Hyde, in his budget proposal, is asking for $184.6 million in county, state and federal funding for next year. If approved, it would mark the largest one-year increase in school spending in the county since 1991.
