Early Beloit school district budget talks
WCLO's Steve Benton reports on early discussions on the Beloit School District's next budget
BELOIT The Beloit School Board is taking some preliminary steps in working out next year's budget.
At a special meeting March 16th, the board discussed ways to cut the budget, or create additional revenue, in order to make up for a proposed deficit. That number was originally $1.5 million, however administration reworked some debt, saving the district over $1 million.
School Board President Michael Ramsdail says they only have to make up for a deficit of about $400,000 at this time. He says they'll have to get creative because they can't afford to cut any programs.
