CBS Minnesota reported on Wednesday that someone with the Minneapolis school district made a $3.7 million clerical error on the new teacher contract. This error is huge but the district said they will not have to make big cuts to deal with the mistake.
The Star Tribune reported that the cost of the teacher contract will actually cost $14.7 million, and not $11 million like they originally thought.
No program or job cuts will be neccesary, Stan Alleyne said to Star Tribune, because of the cushion the budget provided. Although the error was significant, they felt they were prepared for it.
