Fulton schools plans to add five teachers for 2014 budget

If all goes according to plan he Fulton Public School District plans to add five kindergarten, middle school and special education teachers in next year’s budget.

Superintendent Jacque Cowherd said that the budget, which will be a topic of discussion at Wednesday’s school board meeting, was shaping up more strongly than in years past, with a “strong” local tax collection base and an anticipated 91 percent of its state budgeted funds coming in — an increase from years past.

“We’re trying to hold the line on expenditures. Our class sizes are pretty good in most areas, but we’ve encountered some extremely large class sizes in the middle school, and that’s where we’re trying to address that and some of the areas in our special needs program.”
