Sulphur Springs ISD Business Manager Sherry McGraw said putting together the budget for this school year was relatively easy. Lots of things that were started last year were continued including a new salary scale and different pay grades. Ms. McGraw said the tax rate was reduced one-cent on the Interest and Sinking fund side. The budget includes 22 new positions mostly due to co-teaching and extra aides.
Sulphur Springs ISD Business Manager Sherry McGraw said she was glad to see the end of last school, year’s budget. It required spending $1.7-million out of the fund balance. Board approved projects included removing water under the Middle School, purchasing $500,000 for Ipads for students and $43,000 for graphing calculators. Ms. McGraw said auditors were still pleased with the district’s fund balance at the end of the old budget year.
