Baton Rouge school budget lacks enough money

10 months ago Monday, June 02, 2014 5:06:25 AM CDT June 02, 2014 Monday, June 02 2014 Jun 2, 2014 in News

BATON ROUGE - Unlike in years past, about a third of the spending proposed in the East Baton Rouge Parish school system's $441.1 million general operating budget reflects the judgments of school principals, not the central office.

However, the recently released budget proposed for the fiscal year starting July 1 is still out of balance, not a new phenomenon.

Superintendent Bernard Taylor is projecting the school system will dip into its reserves once again to stay in the black, to the tune of almost $20 million.

The school board will take up the 2014-15 general fund budget on Thursday and is expected to approve a budget when it meets June 19.
