Bend La Pine Schools Need to $35-Million Gap


Bend La Pine Schools Superintendent Ron Wilkinson is proposing to lay off 35 school teachers next year, to close the District's $15 million budget gap. The District also plans to cut eight administrator positions and three more school days. District spokesperson Julianne Repman says a majority of the layoffs will come at the high school level: “But what we do know is in the past, elementary and middle schools had most of the cuts. This year we're looking at the high school level to bring it more into balance.” It's expected 22 teachers at the high school level could be laid off, five at the elementary and 8 at the middle school levels. District officials are scheduled to start union negotiations on these budget cuts. The District is scheduled to approve the final budget on June 28th.
