Tangipahoa schools struggle with budget



AMITE, La. (AP) - The Tangipahoa Parish School Board will use rededicated sales tax revenue, cuts to transportation services, elimination of a perfect-attendance salary bonus and a one-time reduction in the board-mandated minimum fund balance to come within $1 million of a balanced budget for 2013-14.

The Advocate reports the remaining $892,000 needed to prevent a projected $9.6 million deficit for next school year will come through personnel cuts and other cost-saving measures.

Superintendent Mark Kolwe will present a list of positions recommended for elimination at the School Board's next personnel committee meeting. No date has been set yet for the meeting.
