DCSS has more money than they thought
You know that feeling you get when you find money in your pocket? Or a twenty dollar bill on the ground?
Well the Dougherty County School Board is feeling that exact way right now.
Kenneth Dyer, the DCSS Finance Director, told the board at the mid-month meeting that they have quite a bit more in their general fund than they were expecting.
Dyer said, "We anticipated having about $10.9 million in the reserves at the end of our fiscal year. After we closed the books out we ended up having a $12.5 million fund balance which is great for our board."
As far as where the extra money will go, they're looking at possible return of a furlough day and possible increases but those are just ideas for right now.
