After receiving a less-than-enthusiastic response to its first budget proposal, the Dickson County School Board will revisit its 2013-14 spending plan tonight. The county commission’s Budget Committee questioned the board’s decision to delete its annual payment toward the county’s debt and criticized the plan to use $3.2 million from the school system’s reserves, with one commissioner calling it “irresponsible.” Director of Schools Dr. Danny Weeks presented a $61 million budget that did not ask for any additional revenue from the county from property taxes, but dips into its fund balance to pay for several positions that were previously funded by federal programs, adds money for library allocations, creates six new teaching positions, adds nurses and a guidance counselor, adds a technology position and begins preparations for more technology requirements as well as the implementation of Common Core Curriculum. In non-classroom costs, the budget also includes the renewal of several expiring roof warranties and the purchase of new school buses. Yet to be presented to the committee is a request for additional funding for several recommendations for safety improvements made by a special committee in the wake of the Newtown, Connecticut, shooting. The board meets at 7:00 tonight at the central office and is expected to present its revised budget proposal to the Budget Committee Monday night before a public hearing is held on the entire county budget proposal for the new fiscal year.
