Board Meeting Tonight Focuses on Budget Battle

Tonight’s school board meeting (click here for the agenda) will consider those long-awaited budget cuts that have been bantered about for a couple of weeks now.

See today’s High Point Enterprise for more on tonight’s meeting. Here’s a short excerpt:

The Guilford County Board of Education will re­sume budget talks tonight as it work towards balancing the 2007-08 budget.
The Guilford County Board of Com­missioners has appropriated the school system $165.2 million in local dollars. The amount is $8.5 million more than last year, but less than the $11 million increase the county man­ager proposed and the $15.8 million increase the school system asked for in its budget request.
Board members will work with staff to make cuts in order to balance the budget.

Oughta be interesting…

E.C. 🙂
