State impasse leaves school budget in limbo
Chuck Kajer, Managing Editor
New Prague Area Schools has a 2009-10 general fund budget all set to go. All it needs is a resolution by the school board.
But that resolution will have to wait. The New Prague Area School Board decided to withhold approval until they get a better idea of the levels of funding from the state legislature.
With just days remaining in the legislative session, the Minnesota Legislature has yet to pass a school funding bill that Gov. Tim Pawlenty will sign. Until that happens, board members are going to wait on approval.
