Description/Abstract: The Syracuse school board Wednesday approved a $247.6 million spending plan that includes a bigger shortfall than the budget proposed by Superintendent Stephen C. Jones. The plan's known revenues fall $37.7 million short of expenses, and Jones' proposed budget had a $29.4 million gap. The district budget assumes extra money from the state or the city will fill the hole.
