Rochester Schools Await Funding Numbers From St. Paul
Rochester Public School Superintendent Michael Munoz was on KROC AM radio this Thursday morning with Rich Peterson and Kim David to talk about everything school-related.
In regards to funding from the State Capitol, Munoz said the district has already completed its budget for the next school year based on an expected 2 percent increase. As it stands now, the Legislature is throwing around amounts closer to a 1.25 or 1.5 percent increase.
If the number ends up at 1.5 percent, they would have to shave around a half-million dollars off of next year's budget. So, where would the "shaving" begin?
So, we'll see what the Legislators come up with. The superintendent is a monthly guest on KROC AM. His next scheduled appearance will be Thursday, May 4, at 8:40 a.m.
