TCAPS Plans to Cut $6 Million From 2010-2011 Budget

Six million dollars in cuts are expected to be voted on by the TCAPS School Board next month. The latest projections put next year's deficit between six and nine million dollars. The board expressed its frustration over the fluctuating numbers since the estimates keep changing from the state. Board members brainstormed ideas and heard from people in the audience. Several bus drivers spoke out against the idea to combine Special Education busing with Traverse Bay Area ISD. The board will vote on cuts during their February 8th meeting.
