833 considers staff cuts to save money
The sky is not falling, Superintendent Tom Nelson told the District 833 School Board at the Jan. 8 workshop. The district is "in good shape" but will be in better condition in upcoming years if it curbs spending now, he said.
He recommended the board increase class sizes by an average of one-half student at all grade levels. It would cut 12 full-time teaching positions for an estimated savings of $680,000.
