Future action by Santa Fe school board could lead to pay raises


Officials say an influx of state money for Santa Fe Public Schools will mostly go to pay raises. District staff met Tuesday night to finalize the budget details before a vote for the 2019, 2020 school year.

Administrators say of the extra $7.1 million received all but $5,000 will go towards state-mandated raises.

Superintendent Veronica Garcia told the Santa Fe New Mexico they are having to make some cuts in some places. This includes funding for “Communities in Schools,” a non-profit that works with at-risk kids to provide services outside of school like food, housing and healthcare. 

The budget vote is set for the end of this month.
