Video: Choctaw School Budget Adopted

Ackerman, Miss.(WCBI)-Choctaw County Schools Board members adopted their 2013-2014 school budget during a special called meeting this morning [Tuesday].

The three point one million dollar budget comes after a two year effort to consolidate schools there in Ackerman, Weir, and French Camp.

Factored into that budget picture….higher premiums for property liability insurance.

“Its just one of those things we have to deal with, but we shop around, try to get the lowest quote but unfortunately its an increase of 113 percent has hit just our district alone,” said Superintendent Stewart G. Beard, Jr.

The Choctaw County School budget was adopted with little discussion and hesitation.
