AISD School Board Approves $280 Million Budget
The AISD budget for the 2016-2017 school year has been approved.
The budget is just over $3 million from last year. There were several cuts made to make room in the budget for pay raises for all employees.
The school board approved an initial $4.7 million compensation increase last month. The increase is a minimum 2% raise with entry level positions getting an adjustment of $1 per hour.
Increases in health insurance are also planned.
There were some cuts in the budget to contracted work.
The district has around $3 million in capital project funds that will go towards designing a new elementary in southeast Amarillo.
