BASTROP, La. (KNOE 8 News) - More than a month after the state's deadline, a budget has been approved in the Morehouse Parish School Board.

"We went from $1.9 million to $1.2 million," says Superintendent George Noflin about the orginal changes to the deficit.

With the help of their newest employee, Derenda Flowers, the school board was able to go from a $1.2 million deficit down to $200,000.

"Then the board decided what they wanted to end up with after the HB1 money is somewhere around $500,000," says Noflin.

The board voted unanimously on the budget, which will now be submitted to the state.
