School System Facing Dwindling Revenues


August 24, 2017

Monday evening the Transylvania County Board of Education received news that revenues from various sources were down last year and more sources of revenue will be eliminated in the coming school year.

While discussing amendments to the 2016-17 school budget, Norris Barger said there was a $740,000 decrease in state funding, part of which was due to a bookkeeping error.

“Part of that was just a data entry error on my part,” said Barger, who explained that he transposed a number earlier in the year. “I’ll take the blame on that. That’s the reason for the $500,000 decrease.”
