La Joya ISD will spend nearly $50 million more than it brings in next year in a budget presented last week.
“Remember, we did undertake an aggressive approach to technology for our schools,” Alfredo Vela, assistant superintendent of finance told La Joya Independent School District Board of Trustees at a public hearing on the budget.
He also acknowledged a $2,400 salary boost for teachers and a 4 percent raise for other professionals in the district. Technical and maintenance workers will get a $1.25 per hour raise.
