Art supplies sparks discussion on longterm planning at MCPS

2 min read

Maury County Public Schools board members stressed the need for the school district to ensure all of its classrooms are fully-equipped for its students.

During the board’s December work session, it reviewed a $48,000 budget amendment to fund art supplies in the county’s schools.

The added funds, taken from the district’s fund balance, or more than $2 million in savings, will provide art classes across the district with supplies for the current academic year.

“We need to find a way that those are accounted for each year,” said David Moore, who represents District 5 on the board. “This board has said over again that when we start the new year, no child grows up and says I don’t have a textbook. I don’t want them to show up and not have the materials they need for the class. I think that is something that needs to be budgeted.”
