Rutherford County Schools’ will have to increase their budget by $14-million dollars to make ends meet in the next fiscal year. The budget, that was proposed on Thursday, rings in at $285-million. Last year the budget passed at $267-million.

One of the reasons for the upswing in the budget is to cover the costs of 30-new teachers. Additional staff will also be hired in the next fiscal year to meet increased state mandates.
