Community meetings on school district budget planned

The Board of Education is learning how to handle a $61 million deficit over the course of two years  and wants to make it easier for the parents and children to learn, too.

Commissioners are talking about holding community meetings starting sometime in November to specifically talk about the budget, what kind of decisions they might be making and how they could affect everyone.

Typically accountants and staff start number crunching for the next budget in spring for the board’s approval by the end of the school year.

However, the saga of budget woes has continued; they’ve already busted out their calculators for the next school year.

“We think it’s really important that everyone knows what’s going on,’’ said Commissioner Sandra Lee Fewer.
