The Wicomico County School Board says it expects to fall short by just over $9 million for the fiscal year budget of 2018 to 2019.
The Salisbury Daily Times reports that the school system is now slated for a General Operating budget of around $194.4 million.
That’s an increase of just over $2 million.
But in order to fill that gap the board says that figure should $203 million.
The board will be finalizing its budget over the next several months and Superintendent Donna Hanlin says public input will be important in developing the spending blue print.
