The Killeen Independent School District will hold a workshop today to discuss the fiscal year 2018 budget.

The district has been working nearly seven months to prepare a fully developed budget that will be presented in August for the 2017-2018 school year.

At previous meetings, the district approved a projected 0.84 percent student growth increase and a 1.5 percent estimated property value growth, but the $371.2 million general fund amount could change or be adjusted.

That projection is expected to have just over 44,200 students attending KISD schools next year.

The district will also discuss changes to the current staffing allocations that detail where faculty members’ home campus will be for 2017-18.

Changes are also expected to be presented in relation to the district’s strategic facilities plan that explains what the district plans to build. The district will be considering whether to move funds from this plan back into the general fund for general purchases.

The district also will discuss a policy change to no longer allow political candidates to deliver campaign material on campus.

Currently the district allows political candidates to deliver campaign material to campus administration, but they cannot speak directly to faculty members during business hours.

The workshop will begin at 6 p.m. at the district office at 200 N. W.S. Young Drive.
