  • SHELBY COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD - Board voices condolences for Marshall County

    Shelby County’s board of education meeting Thursday opened with a moment of silence in honor of the Marshall County School district.

    The Shelby County Board of Education Thursday reviewed a draft budget that, according to the district’s Director of Finance Susan Barkley, would not balance without some changes.

    Decreases from SEEK [Support Education Excellence in Kentucky] funding and required CERS [County Employees Retirement System] payments contribute to an unbalance, tilting the budget into the red at just more than $300,000 of nearly $50.4 million in expenses compared to a little more than $50 million in expected revenue.
