Kershaw County School board members were presented preliminary information Tuesday night regarding the district budget for the fiscal year which will begin in July. The preliminary budget comes to over $81.2 million- that’s a 3.1% increase over the current district budget. Dr. Frank Morgan, school superintendent says factors impacting the budget include a projected increase of around a hundred students. Morgan added that the preliminary budget assumes no increase in local millage. Later this month the district will hold a series of public meetings to discuss and learn about public feeling regarding the proposed spending plan. Morgan said the goal is to have a final budget approved by mid-may.
