Columbia Public Schools approves $266 million budget
The Columbia School Board approved the district's budget for the 2013-2014 fiscal year.
The $266 million budget includes a planned excess in spending over revenues by nearly $3 million.
Columbia Public Schools spokeswoman Michelle Baumstark says the deficit spending is intentional because of the Battle High School opening.
