Winchester School Board Approves Budget Cuts

27 June 2019 Winchester News

Winchester’s School Board was able to cut just over $370,000 from its budget for fiscal year 2020 on June 24, 2019.

The cuts became a necessity after an increase in city funding for the 2020 budget fell short of the extra $720,000 needed to make the over $73 million budget possible. The largest savings came from freezing five open teacher assistant positions, which would have cost the school system $150,000. Other cuts included a 32% cut to an after school tutoring program, a cut teacher position that could return with increased enrollment or more state funding, and the reduction of a public information officer position from full-time to part-time. All board members present Monday voted in favor of the budget amendments.
