BOE in deficit mode after locally funded raises last year

The Bulloch County Schools should receive an almost $1.7 million increase in state funding this year, Chief Financial Officer Troy Brown told the Board of Education last week. Whether the money will be used for new raises for teachers and other employees, or to help offset the continuing cost of raises and other locally funded spending increases begun last year, remains to be seen. “What the superintendent has instructed me to do at this point is to park those funds … so that it can be decided at a later date how the board and the superintendent would like to act upon that $1.7 million,” Brown said Thursday during the board meeting at Portal Middle High School.
