Washington TN School Budget Progresses
They have done as instructed. The Washington County Tennessee School Board has cut more than $2 million from the proposed budget for the coming fiscal year, dropping it back to $62 million. Jobs for 25 additional instructional assistants were pulled at a half million dollars. Another $100,000 in regular instructional costs including new school resource officers for school protection were deleted. Funding was approved for Sheriff deputies and $100,000 each for maintenance and technology costs. Some federally funded teachers may be shifted within the system structure to remain on the job. Some of the cuts will come in fuel costs and grounds keeping positions. The full Washington County Tennessee commission will consider the opposed budget Thursday. If it's not approved, it will be returned to the board. If approved, it moves ahead for state consideration.(CS)
