A proposed $209 million budget – including travel and conference spending increased by 71 percent to $1.6 million – goes before Fairfield-Suisun School District trustees for a vote when they meet Thursday.
“This is one of the most important things we do,” Trustee Pat Shamansky said of the budget.
She spoke at the school board’s June 9 meeting when the proposed budget for 2016-17 was presented to trustees.
Laneia Grindle, director of fiscal services for the school district, said, “Our business is educating our students.”
