Budget figure misleading
A wider variety of programs,
smaller class sizes and inclusion
of funds used for Community
Education are among the factors
that lead to a misinterpretation of
money per student spent in the
Palacios ISD in 1983-84 according
to superintendent George Holst.
Holst's comment was in refere-
nce to a survey comparison of
average statewide school budg-
ets and the Palacios ISD 1983-84
budget made by the Texas
Research League. The Research
League, in an article in last
week's Beacon noted that the
average budgets called for spen-
ding "$ 2,71*3’"per 5tiT*ent for
operations in 1983-84 while the
$5,293 per student based on
1,297 students in average daily
Holst pointed out that the
actual expenditure per child
based in the PISD ADA for that
year was $4,081. Among the
reasons for being above the
statewide average he said was
because the district offered more
programs for students than most
other schools the same size. In
addition the district’s board
policy calls for smaller classes
and pay for professional and
para-professionals was higher
than many other schools.
