TUSCALOOSA – The Tuscaloosa City Schools Board of Education approved its five-year capital plan and 2022-23 fiscal year budget Tuesday.

The budget includes funding for 36 new school buses, pay raises and step raises for teachers and coaches, and planned renovations on city school properties.

Tuscaloosa City Schools Superintendent Mike Daria said the new budget prioritizes students’ learning, experiences and safety.

“You’ll see a heavy focus on teaching and learning, and student supports. We have interventions, we have coaches and teachers so that we can really work on the strategic plan of the Tuscaloosa City Schools.
