“I fully anticipate the board will establish a budget that will fall within the property cap threshold,” Scott said.
He said there had been discussion of exceeding it, but board members are aware that many households and district residents are facing tough times financially. They understand that Americans are in the very early stages of a recovery, Scott said.
“It appears the board is very much wanting to reflect their awareness of resident and household and community challenges.”
Scott said that while the cuts were extremely painful, the district is operating more efficiently and that all programs in place this school year will remain intact.
“And all students will be staying in the building they are in this year,” Scott said.
