(Cleveland)- The White County Board of Education gave their approval Thursday night to a tentative FY-2020 budget for the school system.
School Finance Director Julie Dorsey told the board that they are looking at $2-million dollars in additional expenses compared to this year and that will push the total budget to an expected $41- million dollars. Dorsey also told the board that at this time they will have to utilize some fund balance money to meet the budget next year.
The final story about funding the budget will come when the school system will hear from the White County Tax Assessors Office about the expected property values in the county for this year.
The board of education will hold a couple of public budget hearing during June before a final decision is made on the budget.
