No raises in the proposed EVSC budget for 2014

The Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation is proposing a budget for 2014 without having to use revenues from the previous school year. The EVSC’s $227 million budget was presented to the School Board Monday night. A final vote is set for late September. Nearly all the $153 million general fund will be used to pay salaries and benefits. The proposed budget does not include raises for employees in 2014. There were no raises last year either. Superintendent David Smith says an increase of about $3.5 million in health care costs prevented raises this year.
