From Coweta County Schools Press Release

The Coweta County Board of Education has held two budget workshops to discuss the school system’s 2018-19 fiscal year budget.

The board held the second of two workshops on Tuesday (May 29) following a May 22 public workshop at the Board’s 237 Jackson Street office.

The school board is considering an operational budget of $209,168,480 for the school system’s 2019 fiscal year (FY 2019), and is expected to consider tentative approval of the budget at its June 12 regular meeting.  If approved, a vote for final approval would be held on June 26.  The budget would take effect in the school system’s new fiscal year beginning July 1, 2018.

The budget being considered by the board would not raise local property tax rates, which have remained at 18.59 mills since 2005. The budget would also maintain the current student calendar of 180 instructional days and the current instructional program for students, provide a 1 percent cost-of-living raise for certified and classified school system employees, and step increases for certified and classified employees, where due.
