Should Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District consider an increase of salaries for the coming school year, even as it faces a budget deficit of nearly $600,000?

That was the question raised during a discussion of the proposed budget at a special meeting of the board of trustees held Monday night at 6:30 p.m. Chief financial officer Moises Santiago led the discussion.

Due to losses of revenue from multiple sources, the district stands to be short $597,254 in operational costs for the coming school year. Santiago has proposed to take money from the district’s unassigned fund balance, or savings account, to compensate.

If approved, operational costs would come to $45,760,131, down $1.59 million from last year. This, said Santiago, is without increasing salaries.
