BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — The Brunswick County Board of Education met Friday to participate in a budget workshop. Board Members discussed the proposed 2014-2015 budget and the top 5 capital project priorities.

This proposal will be presented to County Commissioners during a committee meeting next week.

School officials created a list of challenges the district faces when returning to a single bell schedule.

Board of Education members also began talks about potential reductions in anticipation of a budget shortfall. They presented a list of proposed budget cut ideas as they try to figure out which cuts are going to least likely affect classrooms.

Sounds like they don’t need a workshop. Sounds like they need to go back to math class after the last meeting where they voted to return to traditional schedule at a cost of about $1million dollars. This was at the same meeting where they were warned of NC cutting back on mileage reimbursements for buses each year at a cost of about $1.5million, as well as having to cough up and unexpected $.5million for sewer easement fees that the county had initially agreed to waive in exchange for land for a pump station. I’m not a math whiz, but it looks like they cost themselves about $3million in one meeting. Nice job Catherine Cooke,!
