USD 257 board members were given recommendations to cut $1,042,900 from the 2010-11 budget Monday evening. That’s $140,000 more than what Dr. Craig Neuenswander, superintendent of schools, called “a worse-case scenario” budget crunch of $902,000.
Neuenswander noted that “state revenue continues to decline” — in February it was down another $71 million — “and if the Legislature does nothing to generate new money, state aid cuts could be more severe than now anticipated.”
