Upshur County BOE Approves 2013-2014 Budget

Posted: Updated:

The Upshur County Board of Education has approved its 2013-2014 budget.

Most of the $36-million-plus is earmarked for salaries and benefits for employees.

The board also is looking at making some capital improvements in its schools.

"We're always trying to do things to maintain our facilities and upgrade them, but most of those things are smaller than that HVAC project. We have an excess levy that provides some funds for maintenance and capital improvements," said George Carver, director of finance.

The school system will use a $ 1-million SBA matching grant to replace those systems.

The board factored the match into the budget.

Also, it plans to replace seating inside the auditorium at Buckhannon Upshur High School.
