The called meeting, set for 6 p.m., should see board members approving the tentative budget; the fiscal plan could then receive the board's final approval later this month.
Board members and district officials also are slated to discuss the 2010-2011 school calendar during the meeting. Superintendent John Harper during last month's board business session said he intended to discuss the calendar issue in relation to the district's revenues, and if a change to the calendar is needed due to funding reductions.
Harper at that meeting said district leaders hope to maintain a school calendar that has 180 days for students and 190 for teachers.
"We're hoping to maintain [our] calendar. However, we do understand that with the revenue from the state being what it is, there is a good chance that that might not occur, and we've had discussions among ourselves about how to handle that situation when it comes about," Harper said at the meeting. "We know that if any reduction in revenue occurs, then we'll be forced at looking at changing our calendar."
The superintendent said that if a calendar change becomes necessary, days likely would be removed from the calendar at the front end by moving the school year's start date, a move preferred by board members.
Today's meeting will be held in the central office boardroom.
