The Washington County School District has approved the first reading of its 2011-12 budget, and there is some good news during what are otherwise tough economic times.
The overall budget is $17 million, with $13 million being in the general fund.
Some school districts have had to make cuts, but the Washington County district has been able to create savings to provide a 1-percent pay increase for employees, according to Superintendent of Washington County Schools Robin Cochran.
