At Thursday's Stephens County Board of Education work session, Stephens County School Superintendent Bryan Dorsey updated the board on the Fiscal Year 2016 budget process.
said that a number of factors have led to the need to push completing a budget for Fiscal Year 2016 into the month of July.
"With two board members out this week, two board members out next week, with a new finance director, and us wanting to make sure we have the most accurate numbers possible, we are delaying requesting any final budget approval until July," said Dorsey
hopes to have a tentative budget ready to go and present to the board perhaps as early as the second week of July.
Work has begun on a tentative budget, according to Dorsey
said that while it is early in the process, he
feels good about how the Fiscal Year 2016 budget is starting to come together.
"We are absolutely seeing the savings that we had been projecting," said Dorsey
said that staff has done an amazing job coming together and working hard to save every dollar possible in this fiscal year.
"I think of people, like in our maintenance department where they are almost a half million dollars under budget, which is a big deal," said Dorsey
