The South Bend School Corporation agreed on its 2008 budget tonight.
The school board held a public hearing last two weeks ago and today they heard a few more comments before giving the okay.
The more than 200 million dollar budget also switches more bus drivers from contract to actual School Corp employees.
Jim Cobalt is a contract Bus Driver and says, “We are requesting that some of our mileage be re-instated from what we lost from previous levels. When these miles are properly placed geographically, we would provide many financial and operational benefits to the transportation department.”
Teacher’s salaries are still undecided those will be done during contract negotiations with the union.
