Sisters Closes an 800-Thousand Dollar Budget Deficit Without Going to a Four Day School Week


The district had considered doing that earlier this year when they were trying to reconcile an 800-thousand dolllar budget hole.

 

Sisters School Boad member Don Hedrick says they were able to close the hole -- other ways.

 

"Well, between several grants that we have received recently and money from the Lundgren Mill Fund, which is money the district got from selling some property, we've been able to fill the hole for the budget for the next year."

 

The district is still negotiating contracts with teachers and other district workers, so that part of the equation remains up in the air.

 

Hedrick says they may have to cut some school days next year to balance the budget.
