Lafayette School Board Delays Budget Adoption

It may be a little while longer until the public gets a chance to view the Lafayette Parish school system’s $654 million proposed budget.

The budget might not be ready until late July or early August.

School board members decided they were not yet ready to issue the spending plan.

Some members say there are just too many issues that they still need to decide upon before they put the budget out to the public.  One issue is the proposed elimination of some 44 teacher and seven assistant principals.

Those cuts were discussed because of over staffing issues.

The board has already approved the $256 million general fund with salaries and teaching expenses on June 18th.

Budget discussions will continue on July 18.
