For the first time in four years, Superintendent Dr. Tim McGonegal announced there will be no budget cuts next year. McGonegal says because the school district didn't defer budget cuts to future years like other Boards, they have a surplus of $2 million for next year.
The school district will hold the first of three public hearings on the budget this Monday, June 18 in the Board Room at the School Support Center. The hearing begins at 5:45 p.m.
