JAMESTOWN – A 2012-2013 Jamestown Public Schools budget will most likely be finalized tonight when the Jamestown School board holds its monthly meeting.
Earlier this month it was learned the district would get about $324,000 more in state aid than originally anticipated. Jamestown school officials say the money will be used to help to keep teachers in the classroom.
The district is looking at a $77.7-million budget for the 2012-2013 budget. In all, the district is receiving about $3.4-million more in state aid compared to the current year’s budget. With the announcement of the additional state funding earlier this week, school officials still have to deal with a $750,000 budget gap – but they have been able to find ways to close that gap without needing to increase taxes.
Tonight’s meeting begins at 7 p.m. in the school administration offices on Martin Road.
