The Sister’s School Board approved its $11.4 million budget for next year. It's a little more than a million dollars less than last year's budget. School Board member Glenn Lasken says they had to make some tough decisions. “This was probably the most difficult budget cut in the 12 years I’ve been on the Board. We had to cut 10% of our operating budget, not easy to do since we'd been making cuts over the previous years as well. A majority of the cuts were from teacher’s concessions.” They agreed to fewer days and to forego some scheduled increases to make the budget balance.
