St. Paul schools facing budget cuts

The St. Paul school board announced Tuesday that they will cut $33 million from their budget beginning next school year.

The announcement comes after board members were faced with fixing the current $27 million budget gap that the school district is facing, according to the Star Tribune.

Everything from closing buildings to shutting down 10 school pools was mentioned in the proposed plan. More than a third of the cuts would come from centrally administered programs and services, according to the Pioneer Press.

The recent deficit on enrollment that has resulted in reduced student aid and rising costs are some of the things that officials placing the blame on, which is a main reason why the school district is facing such a deficit, according to the Star Tribune.

More specifics about the proposed budget cuts will be mentioned at a board meeting on May 4, which will then be followed by a series of community meetings, according to the Pioneer Press.
