School Board Chairman Ronnie McAmis and board member Kelly Crain discuss the source of funding for new Skyward 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.
