The Parkland School Board approved, with reservation, the budgets for Lehigh Carbon Community College, Lehigh Career & Technical Institute and Carbon Lehigh Intermediate Unit 21.
The Parkland School Board on Tuesday approved the budgets for three educational institutions that depend on the district for part of their funding.
