Preliminary figures show Gladewater ISD most likely will be able to unfreeze salaries and have a balanced budget in 2012-13, Superintendent J.P. Richardson said Tuesday.

Despite contending with another $518,785 cuts in 2012-13, Richardson said the district is prepared for the reductions and expects to be able to unfreeze salaries.
