Forsan ISD faces price hikes
FORSAN — Increases in salaries, health insurance and cafeteria costs will be the focus of Forsan Independent School District trustees when they hold their monthly meeting at 7 p.m. Monday in the administration wing board room.
FISD Superintendent Randy Johnson said the district has received notification that employee health insurance costs will increase in the coming school year.
Traditionally, the district has paid all employee insurance costs. If it continues with that policy, the district's employee insurance bill will increase by about $33,000 in 2011-2012, Johnson said.
But with the district facing a sizable decrease in state revenue this year, trustees may decide to pass at least some of the insurance cost increase on to its employees.
