With more money in the bank, the Jackson County School System will restore funding to some areas that it previously slashed during budget cuts.
The Jackson County Board of Education agreed Monday to a restoration plan that includes up to a potential $624,350 in spending for hiring additional staff, and paying more for athletic and fine arts transportation to events.
“We came up with a list that we think benefits a lot of different people and groups in the school system,” said superintendent Shannon Adams on Thursday. “We tried to restore (funding) in as many places as we could; obviously, we couldn’t do them all. But we think the ones that we did do make sense.”
