Body

Despite not knowing how much money it will get from the state, the New Hanover County School Board Tuesday night approved its 2009-2010 budget.

Board members unanimously approved the $211 million budget. But because there is not yet a finalized state budget, there may have to be some amendments down the road.

Depending on how much money the board gets from the state, 33 employees may have to be let go, which would include 21 teaching assistants and the rest clerical and maintenance positions.

Nick Rhodes of the New Hanover County School Board said, “We have prioritized things and the things that are below the line, we’re trying to move them back up. Our main objective is to protect the classroom and make sure there’s no impact on instruction delivery.”

The school board expects to learn about its state budget allocation by July 15th.
