The Enterprise School Board approved a $108-million dollar budget for the upcoming school year.
That figure includes more than $40-million for construction of the city's new high school.
Site work is underway to rebuild the $100-million dollar facility at the west end of the Boll Weevil Circle. In two-years, it'll replace the school, which was destroyed in the March 2007 killer tornado that killed eight students.
In the approved budget, Superintendent Dr. Jim Reese says monies were found to make-up state budget cuts to the classroom.
"With the expense we have with the building going on, we felt it important that the instructional program must be preserved to maintain our instructional programs," Reese explained.
Hillcrest Elementary, which is under construction, should be ready to open one year from now and the new Enterprise High School should be ready by August, 2010.
