This year's school budget for the Bowie ISD is going to be tight.
The budget is about $430,000 less than last year's and comes in balance with the anticipation of revenues.
Bowie ISD trustees approved expenditures of about $12 million dollars from the general fund.
The tax rate will remain the same at a $1.28 per $100 in property value.
The Bowie ISD Finance Director is calling this a, "lean budget." He says, "Officials will all have to stand watch over during the next year."
