The board will get the first briefing on the $182 million general fund budget.  It addresses a projected shortfall of nearly $11.5 million .  

Over half of that amount is reached by a compensation freeze and savings from replacing retiring teachers with new hires.  The board will also vote on outsourcing custodial work.  That move will save an additional $1.8 million.

The budget proposal can be found here.
