Crook County’s School District anticipates it will be facing a $2.2 million budget shortfall next year. So School Board members are considering several options, including closing schools, reducing school days or negotiating concessions from workers. School Board Member Scott Cooper reminds people, this is very early in the budget process: “Toward the end of the budget meeting on Monday night, we took a straw poll after we heard the presentations of closing Paulina or Ochocho. There was no support for closing Paulina. So there's only one option still on the table and that depends on what the short actually is.” Cooper says it's still not clear actually how much State funds the District will receive next year, and until those numbers are firmed up they can't know what their budget shortfall will be.
