The Rochester City School District's 2013-14 budget was passed unanimously by the Board of Education Thursday night.
The 734 million dollar package will extend the school day for up to 10 schools next year.
Board members said the district closed a 50 million budget gap this year.
"We looked at cutting down the amount of money we spend on outside services. We also looked at the amount of money we budgeted for substitute teaching costs. We also looked at transportation savings. We looked at every line of the budget to see what we could pare back,” said Malik Evans, school board president.
The budget came in 6 million higher than March’s draft budget because of additional state aid and two grants, according to the school district.
