Upcoming school year budget increased

A chapter was added to the story of the La Grande School District’s comeback from the 2008-09 recession Wednesday night. 

The La Grande School Board voted to adopt a 2014-15 general fund budget that is more than $1.7 million greater than the present year’s budget. The adopted $19.2 million spending plan will provide the funding needed to add back many positions the district was forced to cut in recent years.

The district’s budget will be up 9.2 percent in 2014-15 because of additional funding it is expected to get from the state, due in part to an improving economy.

The La Grande School District’s financial situation has improved dramatically since 2009 when it had to cut about $2 million due to the recession that forced the state to reduce its public school funding.

La Grande School District Superintendent Larry Glaze said the chance to boost the budget is most welcome after many years of having to make cutbacks. He was worried that he might never see a day when significant additions could be made.

“I was hoping, but I was beginning to wonder,” Glaze said.

The 2014-15 budget will allow the school district to add back 7-1/4 teaching and non-teaching positions. The total will include 4-1/4 teaching positions, with three slated for La Grande High School in the areas of math, science, social studies, health and career technical education.
