The Montgomery County Board of Education unanimously approved a funding request for schools. Superintendent Dr. Jerry Weast says his budget request covers the bare minimum funding requirements.
Cuts to school programs are still possible, especially if a fine of more than $20 million against the county schools from the state is upheld.
The final budget for schools is determined by the county council when it passes the overall county budget. That won't happen until the summer.
