The budget has been prepared and is ready for approval. But first the Decatur school board will let residents have a last word.
A public hearing on the proposed 2013-2014 budget and a tax rate of $1.30 per $100 of taxable value will be held at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 27, at the DISD administration building, 501 E. Collins.
Following the public hearing, the board will vote on approving the budget and tax rate as well as take action on employment of personnel and a year-end budget amendment. Board members will end their evening with a required training session known as “Team of Eight” where the board will set district goals.
