PBC school budget expected to be approved Tuesday

The final version of Palm Beach County's school budget is expected to be approved Tuesday night.

The school board tentatively passed a $2.5 billion budget last month which, at this point, does not include teacher layoffs nor allows for teacher raises either.  There is money set aside to replace two aging elementary schools.

The budget is down compared to last year, and despite a tax increase, the district expects to take in less money due to the drop in property values.
