The total budget comes to $54 million based on a balance of $4 million available to the board from last year and expected tax revenue.
Board member Tommy Sanders said during the meeting he was concerned that the district would not bring in the projected $13.2 million in local taxes listed on the budget.
Alan Melson, director of Financial Services noted that the board had approximately $400,000 in unbudgeted funds from last year in the event of a shortfall.
Superintendent Marvin Williams also stated that the board could amend the budget at any time during the year if revenues were above or below projected levels.
The budget was approved in a 6-3 vote with board members Grady McCrickard, Dan Forsyth, Susan Berry, Tim Turner, Tara O'Neal and Chuch Thaxton voting for and Jane Holbrooks, Tommy Sanders, and Andy Fairel voting against.
