CLEVELAND, Tenn. - The Cleveland city school board is proposing a $36.5 million budget for fiscal year 2011-2012.

If approved by the City Council, the budget will be $902,000 less than the current budget, which ends June 30.

Schools Director Rick Denning said there are no cuts in personnel or services in the proposed budget.

The proposal ads a 1 percent pay raise for all city school personnel and also asks for a new pay scale for city school maintenance crews.

The school board met this morning and also approved a one-time bonus from federal funds for city school system employees. The bonus is $1,425 for all certified staff and $1,348 for all support personnel.
