Spending on travel and conferences by the Fairfield-Suisun School District is estimated to increase by 11 percent to $1 million, according to a draft budget.
The figure includes costs for employees, such as psychologists, to travel from school to school, as well as the expense for teachers and other staff to attend conferences in California and other states.
Laneia Grindle, director of fiscal services, did not immediately have available after the Thursday school board meeting what part of the $1 million pays for school-to-school travel by employees.
Trustee Pat Shamansky asked about the 11 percent increase during a review of the draft budget.
