Discussions revolving around money should dominate the Halifax County School Board meeting when they meet at 6:30 p.m. Monday in the public meeting room at the Mary Bethune Office Complex in Halifax.

Three topics, the fiscal year 2020 budget, audit services for school bus activity funds and purchasing school buses are on the agenda.

Interim Finance Director Robert Aylor plans to present a revision to the fiscal year 2020 budget for the board’s approval.

The board approved the $59,278,198 budget in March.

Included in the approved $59,278,198 budget is $648,839 for a 2 percent raise for teachers plus a step increase on their salary scale and $406,373 for a 3 percent raise for non-teaching staff totaling $1,055,212.

Also included in the school’s approved budget is $14,550,077 from the county and $35,573,964 from the state.

However, in May, the Halifax County Board of Supervisors approved a $95,503,467 budget that included $14,499,077 for schools.

Board members also are slated to discuss audit services for school activity funds as well as lease financing or purchasing of school buses.

In addition to those items, the board also should hear facility discussion from Superintendent Dr. Mark Lineburg.

He also will give a report on recent activities, and Chairman Joe Gasperini is scheduled to make a report.

The board is expected to go into close session at the conclusion of the meeting to discuss personnel matters.
