EBR school district sets ‘budget 101’ meetings

The East Baton Rouge Parish school system will hold two informational community forums about the district’s budget Thursday at the IRC Building on South Foster Drive.

The first forum will be from 10 a.m. until noon and the second forum from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The forums, hosted by Superintendent Bernard Taylor Jr., are being called “budget 101” to help clear up any questions
people might have about the budget and the budgeting process.

The proposed 2013-14 general fund budget, the budget resolution and the 2013-2014 salary schedules will also be discussed at the meeting.
