The DeKalb County Board of Education approved a tentative $1.74 billion budget for the 2017-2018 fiscal year that maintains efforts to focus resources at the regional level, adds more school nurses, allocates funds for prior pay raises and textbooks, and addresses state-mandated rising costs in employee benefits.
The budget process started in March 2017 and the action by the Board of Education at the June 12th business meeting is just one step in the budgetary process. Between now and June 27, there could be changes to the budget. The public will have two other opportunities to give input at millage rate hearings scheduled for 11:30 a.m. and 6:15 p.m., on Tuesday, June 27, 2017, at the Administrative & Instructional Complex, J. David Williamson Board Room, 1701 Mountain Industrial Blvd., Stone Mountain, GA 30083.
The final Budget Adoption and Adoption of Tax Levy is expected to be considered by the Board on Tuesday, June 27.
