The Grandfalls-Royalty Cowboys Football Team is headed to Dallas for the State Championship this weekend but there’s one small problem: there’s no more room in the budget.
According to District Superintendent Joe Helms, although the athletics budget is tapped out, the team was still able to charter a bus to the championship game. Grandfalls-Royalty ISD does not plan for expenses like this during budget meetings however, the District does have general funds in reserve.
Helms says pulling money from the general funds will have no negative impact on the other departments. The School Board will have to approve an amendment to the budget to transfer money from the general funds account to athletics.
