Hall Votes to Make More Cuts as Concerns Linger about State Funding

Posted by wlpo on May 19, 2016

Just days after telling a group of administrators at a conference “there’s nothing left to cut,” Superintendent Mike Struna and the Hall School Board voted to cut another $67,000 from their budget.

The school board has voted in the past 2 months to make more than $350,000 in cuts, according to the NewsTribune. Struna says the cuts are directly tied to the lack of money the school has gotten from the state. He says if an education budget is not passed for the next school year, Hall will have to borrow money to get through the year.

There’s a bill before the State Senate that would “fully fund” education for next year, according to State Senator Sue Rezin. However, Rezin believes partisan politics are currently preventing the bill from advancing.
