MISSION—In a second draft of the budget for the Sharyland ISD 2014-2015 school year, administration presented a $2.2 million deficit. The budget now adds up to $119.4 million, according to Jesse Muñiz, assistant superintendent of business and finance, but he added there are still more items to tweak before the submission of a final draft.
Last month, the board received a presentation at its building operations and finance meeting stating in the first draft of the budget, the district was looking at a $3.2 million deficit.
“Thanks to the team coming together on this, we went back and reviewed the personnel side of it–of course that is where the big bucks are,” Muñiz said. “Going back and looking at payroll, athletics and other miscellaneous adjustments that we made, we were able to knock out about $1,001,793.”
