Panther Valley school board on Thursday voted in favor of the Carbon Career and Technical Institute's 2012-13 budget.
Panther Valley's share of the $6,983,946 spending plan next year comes to $887,138 – $14,840 more than the 2011-12 portion.
Further, CCTI Business Administrator Jeffry P. Deutsch said the school chose not to bill Panther Valley about $39,000 this year due to the poor economy.
Instead, he said, CCTI found places to cut back.
Deutsch and administrative director David Reinbold attended Thursday's public board meeting to explain the budget.
