“I want to thank County Mayor Rogers Anderson and County Commissioners for their support of our School Board’s budget,” said Superintendent Jason Golden.
He added, “This budget will help us continue to provide the excellent educational experience our families expect, and it shows support for our employees with a raise and the continuation of an excellent benefits package.”
