The Mars Area school board tonight approved a preliminary 2014-15 budget that does not raise taxes.

Business manager Jill Swaney said revenues and expenses increased by 5 percent over the past year and are balanced at $43,491,740.

The budget maintains all existing programs and adds six professional positions -- including recalling the final guidance counselor furloughed two years ago -- and two support positions.

One administrator position -- an assistant superintendent director for elementary education -- also will be added.

The board will vote on the final budget June 10.
