DCSS continues working to break even with budget
The Dougherty County School System finance committee is working to get its hands on $8.1 million to break even on the school board's budget.
The board has set goals for the finance committee to meet. The board wants to get rid of as many furlough days as possible which would take about $2 million.
"We provide them with our revenue estimates and some expense estimates and we're going to work in small groups with the board members," DCSS Finance Director Kenneth Dyer said. "We'll get some feedback from them then have another committee meeting to decide what we will recommend to the full board."
The finance committee also sent to the board a $5.5 million project with Water, Gas & Light to lay the groundwork for new technology for students.
