North Adams Schools Preparing for Dire Budget Cuts
The North Adams School Department is preparing three scenarios for budget reductions in anticipation of expected cuts in state education aid because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Business Administrator Carrie Burnett presented the School Committee with 10 percent, 12.5 percent and 15 percent of across the board reductions on Tuesday night.
The committee will be holding a workshop on Monday to discuss ways to meet the second and third targets.
School officials will be providing the committee with more detailed information next week to flesh out what the budget cuts would entail.
The superintendent said they didn't want to come forward with too much detail at this point until the staff being potentially affected are informed, as the school district is contractually obligated to do.
