KINGSTON — Luzerne Intermediate Unit Executive Director Anthony Grieco announced on Wednesday the approval of the unit’s 2013-14 general operating budget by three of its 12 member school districts.

Wilkes-Barre Area, Dallas and Lake-Lehman districts have given their approval, said Grieco, and he said he anticipated other districts will follow suit.

The deadline for finalization of a budget is June 30.

He also reported the state Department of Education recently completed an audit of LIU’s Education for Children and Youth Experiencing Homelessness program, under the direction of Jeff Zimmerman, and had deemed the program to be in full compliance.

The next meeting of the LIU is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. April 21.
