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.
