People are bracing for possible layoffs from a central Iowa school district.

Ballard school leaders say they need to trim close to $900,000 from next year’s budget.

The shortfall is blamed on a drop in enrollment and state funding cuts over the past two years.

As the bulk of the district’s budget is used for salaries, leaders say layoffs are possible.
