Proceeds from the sale of Range Elementary School may be used to offset the cost of a new student information management system needed in the Carter County School System.
At the Board of Education’s Monday night workshop, Carter County Finance Director Ingrid Deloach suggested the school board approve paying for the new Skyward update with the $93,000 gained through the Range sale.
“We have to get a new provider,” Deloach said. “We had an unexpected revenue that was not budgeted, and we’ve got an expense we know we have to have. This will help us in 2014-2015.”
The Skyward implementation is expected to cost $43,552, and the next year the school system will owe $28,460.
The other option is to spread out the cost over three years, Deloach said.
