Fredericksburg Independent School District trustees now have a taste of what’s in store for the district’s finances for 2015-2016.
Deborah Ottmers, assistant superintendent for business and finance, presented tentative plans for a budget for FISD’s next fiscal year on Monday night.
Bobby Kincaid of Pfluger Architects also presented trustees with campus master plans.
The proposed 2015-2016 budget, subject to change, includes $37.4 million in expenditures, a 5.31 percent increase over the 2014-2015 fiscal year.
The current fiscal year ends June 30, and the new fiscal year will begin July 1.
The budget also would include an approximately three-percent increase in teacher salaries.
“This is the most in-depth budget I’ve seen for a school district,” said FISD superintendent Dr. Eric Wright.
“Everybody’s very aware of what they’ll be spending for next year,” Ottmers said. “It’s a detailed but very big process.”
