DuBois School Board presented the first preliminary budget of many to come at
last night’s meeting. Parents who came to speak about the budget disliked that
it calls for a 20% tax increase but members of the board stressed that the
final budget will look a lot different from this one.
They said they are
working with administrators to find where funds can be cut and what needs to be
prioritized. The budget proposal and the ones that follow are all available for
the public to look at. The next school board meeting is February 26th.
