'Worst case' school budget may be less severe
Placeholder Image
Tuesday night, the Kershaw County School Board of Trustees was all set to craft a “worst case scenario budget” for the 2011-12 fiscal year at Superintendent Dr. Frank Morgan’s recommendation. That all changed Wednesday as the S.C. Senate passed a bill to funnel $105 million into education, which will raise the base student cost from $1,788 per student to $1,959. The Kershaw County School District (KSSD) has indicated it will use a more conservative estimate of around $1,900 for the proposed budget.
