The Keller and Arlington school boards have approved their budgets for the upcoming school year.

After massive cuts, the Star-Telegram reports the Keller Independent School District's budget of $200 million includes a surplus.

The superintendent asked board members to vote for the $6 million surplus with the understanding that they can go back and add programs.

Additionally, he sought extra padding in the budget anticipating even deeper cuts next year.

In Arlington, the $400 million budget was approved with the board adding 24 positions and cutting out two furlough days, according to the paper.

The board also adopted a 3-cent tax rate reduction, necessary to qualify for extra state funding next year.
