As part of the Los Alamos Public School Board’s budget approval for next year, certified employees (instructional staff) will receive a 3 percent raise —the first bump in four years.
The board has yet to determine or formalize a raise for classified employees, a group that includes administrative support and maintenance.
The Los Alamos Public School District’s operating budget will remain relatively flat with a few adjustments as a result of higher revenue from larger enrollment numbers.
This year’s entire school budget is projected to be $62 million, with about $34 million for operational expenses. That's a little more than $1 million over the current fiscal year budget.
