ELOY — Teachers in the Eloy Elementary School District returned to school this week to prepare for the upcoming school year, which officially kicks off Monday with the first day of classes.
Superintendent Ruby James and Business Manager Edward Sauceda told the Governing Board Tuesday that they were working to outfit six to seven classrooms at Curiel Primary with new desks.
“We’re just trying to get through the first few days to get the schools ready for the students,” James said. “We’re hoping to have a landslide of students come in.”
The board approved disposing of some school property such as propane tanks, coolers, an old truck and other equipment.
It also approved the final budget of $5,452,672 for fiscal year 2020.
“Once we get our students through the door, we’ll kind of figure out how many kids we have and how much revenue, we’ll bring a revised budget to you,” Sauceda said.
The elementary district is also looking to fill a vacant position for a fifth grade teacher.
