Lansing School District Works to Erase Deficit
Transportation, building maintenance and the way the district uses substitute teachers may change in the coming school year as the Lansing School District works to erase an estimated $2.7 million deficit.
The district also expects to offer some type of retirement incentive for veteran teachers. The board held a work session to discuss budget possibilities.
School administrators already have figured out ways to cut about $4 million from the budget, including the proposed retirement incentive and shifting some expenses to restricted accounts known as categorical funds.
Now the board is looking at the last $2.5 million to $3 million in cuts. Here's the latest information from the Lansing State Journal.
