A spiral of cuts coming to the Waukesha School District.
According to gmtoday, to address the budget deficit in the Waukesha School District, calls have come for “the proposed elimination of elementary, middle and high school athletics, clubs and other co-curricular activities for a combined savings of $1.2 million.”
And, that’s only about one-third of the total cuts needed of $3.7 million. The tentative list is to fill gaps in the 2007-08 budget and is being presented now to give community members as much time as possible to respond.
District administrator Dave Schmidt said, “The list I have presented is really a list of bad choices, but given the current reality of the deficit we face and state laws that limit us, we’re left with few options of where to cut.”
