School Board seek $65M in supplemental funding

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) The Hawaii Board of Education has voted to seek $40 million more in state funding to operate public schools.

The board is seeking another $25 million in capital costs to install air conditioning in more schools.

The board Tuesday approved the budget request for the fiscal year that begins July 1.

The Honolulu Star Advertiser reports the money would be in addition to a $1.37 billion school appropriation by state lawmakers earlier this year as part of Hawaii's two-year budget.

Education Board members say supplemental money would boost teaching staff at most schools.

Board Chairman Don Horner says the additional operating money is needed for schools to handle education reforms such as new teacher evaluations and higher standards in curriculum.

Supplemental requests from state departments are due Wednesday.
