Einstein Charter School’s preliminary 2014-15 budget was set to increase by $1.2 million from last year* as directors convened May 20 to discuss the spending plan.
The hearing took place at the school’s main campus, 5100 Cannes St., and was open to the public.
The budget had been available for public viewing at the school since early May, according to chief financial officer Doug Guidry.
Expenditures on programs, personnel and services are projected to increase across the board. The biggest jumps are in the areas of elementary, pre-kindergarten, social work and nursing services.
The charter school, which offers classes from pre-k through eighth grade at its two campuses in New Orleans East, projects an enrollment of 848 for the coming year. At the time of last year’s budget hearing, estimated enrollment was 443.
