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.
