The Cabarrus County Board of Education will hold a public hearing Monday for its 2016-17 budget. The meeting, beginning at 6 p.m. in the board room at the education center on 4401 Old Airport Road, Concord, will also include budget requests for the next fiscal year.

The system is requesting a $5 million budget increase for expansion and a $1.4 million increase for technology operating expenses.

The system will also consider increasing teacher allotments by more than $2 million and providing an additional $1 million, or an average 12 percent increase, in teacher supplements. The board is also considering $480,000 for eight integrated mental health responders.
