Perry Unveils Savings Plan For Schools

Texas – Gov. Rick Perry says school districts that pool resources to cut some administrative costs will get a state grant equal to 10 percent of their first-year savings.

A news release from the governor's office Tuesday says that districts could cut costs in human resources, accounting, transportation services, technology and facilities through partnerships with districts, counties, cities and the private sector.

Perry unveiled his plan in Abilene on Tuesday and was traveling to Lubbock, where the regional education service center is providing payroll and accounting services to school districts in an area of about 19,000 square miles.
