School district posturing for cuts

Email News Alerts

The Perham School Board is preparing to trim as much as $500,000 from the district's budget next year in order to keep a healthy fund balance in place.


That amount is part of a "worst case scenario" of the district's budget, which doesn't factor in some likely increases in state aid.

School board members voted last week to put administration on the path to a more balanced budget; as in years' past, this includes looking into any new ways to curb spending and raise revenues.
