833 set to approve budget later this month


District 833 School Board members are keeping their fingers crossed that Gov. Pawlenty won't include education funding in the list of expected cuts to the state budget.

If it escapes the red pen, and funding stays flat, the board is expected to approve a $142.8 million budget on June 25.

The budget is up slightly from last year, but an offset of slightly less than $1 million in one-time federal stimulus money reduces it by .6 percent.
