Jefferson City School Board to vote on this year’s budget

Jefferson City Superintendent Dr. Brian Mitchell is attending his last school board meeting Monday night.

Mitchell is giving the school board a final update at Monday night’s meeting. Board members are expected to vote on a new budget as the fiscal year starts a week from Wednesday.

This year’s budget is about $98 million, which is up from last year because the district is continuing to update several buildings.

West Elementary was updated over the past couple of years, and improvements are already underway for East.

This year’s budget includes a $27 million reserve, and officials told ABC 17 News they would like to see that at about $20 million.

There is an across the board 1.8% pay raise for employees, and a new security director position being created at the district level.
