The Bend La Pine School District is looking at stuff cuts as they deal with a projected $16-million budget shortfall. That's about 12% of their budget.  Superintendent Ron Wilkinson: “It has to include people, it will include probably some concessions from employee groups in terms of raises they were entitled but maybe we will not be able to honor. But we will work with our groups through collective bargaining to get to that point.” Wilkinson says the first budget meeting will be April 26th. They will work in the ensuing month and a half to finalize that budget. The Oregon House passed a $5.7 billion K through 12 funding package Tuesday, the Senate passed it last week.   The Governor wants only $5.5 billion and has threatened a veto. Wilkinson says $5.6 million of the $16-million deficit is increased contribution to the PERs fund.
