Lafayette board approves school spending plan


LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - The Lafayette Parish School Board has approved a proposed $256 million spending plan for the 2013-14 school year that offers a $3,979 surplus.

The Advocate reports  Tuesday's vote came after about an hour of discussion over the budget for salaries and instructional costs and possible spending adjustments to protect classroom teacher spots.

Before voting in support of the spending plan for its $256 million general fund, board member Hunter Beasley asked for an assurance that the board could still adjust the budget before final adoption.

Chief Financial Officer Billy Guidry said the board's vote Tuesday enables staff to compile a proposed budget to present to the public that will be considered again by the board next month for final adoption.
