MCBOE Proposes Budget

The Montgomery County Board of Education proposed its new budget for the upcoming school year at a called meeting on July 26.

In the new budget, the school system estimates a total revenue of $16,317,878, $11,867,921 of which will come from the General Fund and $4,449,957 of which will come from special revenue such as Special Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) and Federal sources.

The school system anticipates spending most of this budget on instruction, which is estimated to cost $8,240,000. Other high anticipated costs come from areas such as Maintenance and Operations, Student Transportation, Food Service Operations, and Pupil Services.

The entire budget is available for review on the school system’s website. Public hearings are scheduled for Friday, August 18, at 12 p.m. and Monday, August 21, at 5 p.m. at the Board of Education office. Final adoption will be voted on at the Board’s meeting on Monday, August 21, at 6 p.m. In addition to the proposed budget, the Board also accepted a few lastminute personnel recommendations for the upcoming school year. Kimberley Bell was approved as the Food and Consumer Science teacher at Montgomery County High School, Jonathan Hardeman was hired as a bus driver substitute, and Monti Winge was hired as a paraprofessional for substitute teachers.
