Murfreesboro Diamond

MURFREESBORO - Superintendent Roger Featherston introduced discussion on the possible closure of the Delight Elementary School campus Tuesday during a meeting of the South Pike County school board.
The commentary came as part of a financial report for 2013-14 that projects a decline of close to $50,000 in the school’s ending balance for the upcoming term. Although the projections show that funding is expected to increase by close to $100,000, Featherston said salaries will likely increase by roughly $28,000 in the coming year, the school will need to pay an additional $3,000 in insurance and may need to add another technology employee - factors that, combined with the $90,000 traditionally moved to the school’s building fund each year, could result in the declining balance.
