School board to discuss 2013-14 budget

The Watauga County Board of Education will meet Friday for a work session on the 2013-14 budget.

At the meeting, individual schools and departments will present their funding requests for consideration by the board. After receiving the requests, the budget committee will meet at a future date to begin digesting the information and determining priorities, said finance director Ly Marze.

Marze said she would like to offer a draft budget to the board in April, either at its regular meeting or a special called meeting, before presenting the budget to the county in May.

Aside from salaries, which account for most of the budget, "curriculum and instruction will be a big thing, technology will be a big thing, and facilities," Marze said.

The board will meet at 10:30 a.m. at the Margaret E. Gragg Education Center on Pioneer Trail, and the meeting is expected to end at 4:30 p.m.
