School board calls meeting to adopt budget

The Coweta County Board of Education will hold a called meeting Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. to formally adopt the budget for the 2014 fiscal year. 

The operational budget of $168,026,00 was tentatively adopted at the school board’s June 11 meeting at the Jackson Street office. 

The school system operates on a fiscal year from July 1 until June 30 of the following year. The budget covers school system operations and other expenditures. It is also based on revenue estimates, including anticipated state educational funding during the upcoming year and local property tax revenue. 

According to Dean Jackson, spokesman for the school system, the 2014 fiscal year budget is less than the one adopted last year by the school system. That budget was for $168,516,698. However, no reductions in K-12 academic offerings are anticipated during the upcoming school year. 

The board will also discuss policy reviews and hold an executive session to discuss the remaining personnel needs for the upcoming school year. 

The next regular monthly meeting will be on July 9 at 6:30 p.m. at the Jackson Street office.
