The sequestration budget cuts mean Oregon schools will lose $20-milion.  $6-million  would have been spent helping students with disabilities.  Heidi Sipe, from the Umatilla School District, says without the federal funding, they need to take that money from other programs because they're still required to help students with disabilities.  The cuts will affect 600 Head Start students; 140 teachers will lose their jobs and 80 other school staff members will be cut.
