The Quaker Valley School Board approved a 2014-15 preliminary budget totaling $43.9 million and including a $923,671 deficit.

The district's original spending plan, drafted in January, reflected a deficit of $1.1 million, but the shortfall was trimmed based on updated projections of expenses, Superintendent Joseph H. Clapper said.

With passage of the preliminary budget on Tuesday, the district can seek exemptions from a state index that limits tax increases, officials said. The budget is available for review between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays in the Quaker Valley School District offices, 100 Leetsdale Industrial Drive, Leetsdale.

The board is scheduled to approve a proposed final budget on April 8 and a final version on May 20.

Residents may serve on a budget committee that will meet from 7 to 9 p.m. on April 1, April 29 and May 15 at Edgeworth Elementary School. Contact Tina Vojtko at
