Little Rock School District foresees $344M taken in, $355M going out


The Little Rock School District is submitting to the state a 2016-17 budget of $344.6 million in revenue and $355.9 million in expenses -- including $34 million, mostly for a new middle school but also for other capital improvements.

"This budget proposal adequately funds the educational priorities of the LRSD," Superintendent Mike Poore said in an introductory budget letter to Arkansas Education Commissioner Johnny Key, whose role includes serving in the place of an elected school board for the state-controlled Little Rock system.

"This budget financially reinforces the strategies that will enable our District to continue making gains in student academic achievement while staying financially solvent," Poore also said in the letter.
