"We need to watch spending because of the economy," she said.
The board approved a $14.8 million draft budget for the next fiscal year that includes a 2 percent increase in salaries for certified personnel.
Randolph said she hopes to get the $233,000 from the state to cover salaries for certified personnel. She will know more about the state budget after the legislature finishes meeting.
This is the third consecutive year for cuts in state revenue for the Youth Services and Family Resource centers.
Marilyn Coffey and Jennifer Godbey of the Family Resource Centers and Steve Sweeney, coordinator for the Youth Services Center, gave a report on what the centers, established in 1991, provide for school children.
State grants fund the centers and are based on the number of children on free lunch eligibility, said Coffey.
She said when the program started in 1991, $200 was provided for each child, and that amount has dropped to $190.
Once the centers are established, they can serve all children in each school.
Coffey said they continually look for grant funds to help with the programs for families and children.
She said the school system has been serving as many as 35 families, but that amount has been cut in half because of budget cuts.
The programs go along with the "No Child Left Behind" program and help children with reading and health care, and work with parents in teaching their children to read. Coffey said the children, from birth to 5 years old, receive high quality services.
"We hope by the time the children move into kindergarten, they can read."
The year-round programs serve children ages 3-12 years old, Coffey said.
