SCHOOL BUDGET: Johnston Board To Vote On Cuts
The Johnston School Board votes on budget cuts Monday, with 14 full time positions on the line.
Members are voting on the budget during a special meeting starting at 6:00 p.m.
The district is dealing with a $1.2 million deficit in the general fund. School board officials blame state funding cuts and slow growth for the shortfall.
The superintendent says the 14 personnel reductions are covered by planned early retirements, attrition, or resignations.
The board is also considering more than 20 other cost saving measures.
