New variables in next District 833 budget
On first glance the South Washington County Schools budget for 2013-14 looks a lot like the current budget.
Spending is up slightly, and, if nothing changes, there would remain a $6.1 million deficit.
But there are complications this year. Contracts for eight of the district's largest bargaining units, including teachers, must be settled and it is unclear what the new Legislature will do with education funding since the state faces a $1 billion deficit.
