East Baton Rouge School Board to tackle budget

BATON ROUGE - The East Baton Rouge Parish School Board is scheduled this week to approve its annual operating budget. But board members remain divided on some of Superintendent Bernard Taylor's proposed spending and cutting plans, as well as what to do with greater-than-expected state education funding.

The school board is debating a proposed $426.6 million budget that includes $6.2 million worth of cuts. That budget doesn't reflect the state education funding formula the Legislature approved as it finished its session on June 6.

That brings an estimated $69 million in extra funding to public schools statewide.

The board meets Thursday to consider next year's budget
