The Harford County Board of Education has planned a special business meeting for Thursday, May 31st to discuss the operating budget for the fiscal year 2013. A board vote is also planned on appointments and promotions to be recommended by Superintendent Robert M. Tomback.
Operating funding for Harford County Public Schools has been finalized by state and county fiscal authorities for next year and falls approximately $24 million short of the amount requested by the school board, according to Teri Kranefeld, manager of communications for HCPS. Included in the school board’s total general operating budget request of $444.3 million were funds to provide salary increases for all school employees. Board members will hear a presentation on the funding shortfall for next year and hold a discussion on potential cuts to their requested budget, with final action expected in June.
Also on the special meeting agenda for May 31st, Superintendent Tomback will announce promotions and appointments that will be considered for approval by the school board.
Below is the published May 31st meeting agenda for the Harford County Board of Education. The meeting will begin at 5:15 p.m. in the boardroom at the A.A. Roberty Building in Bel Air. A public comment period is scheduled for 5:20 p.m. Please note that published agendas are subject to change:
