The budget committee met with administrators Monday. It projected the state of the district’s finances for the 2013-14 school year. The shortfall could be as high as $16 million.
Part of the problem is a lack of state funding.
“When you need to make cuts, you’re going to those huge important things like class sizes, the programs that we offer, the number of staff that we have to offer services to students, and those have impacts on students and impacts on the quality of our community,” said Kerry Delf, 4J Spokesperson.
This was only a committee meeting. 4J did not make any decisions. It doesn’t have to set the budget until June.
