School board approves preliminary figure for cuts
The Wadena-Deer Creek School Board approved $236,000 as a starting figure for upcoming cuts in the budget at their January meeting Tuesday night in the Elementary Media Center.
A final decision on the amount the district will cut must be approved by the board in February.
The school district is anticipating a number of retirements at the end of the 2010-11 school year. According to WDC Business Manager Jerry Anderson, each retirement could save the district $15,000-$21,000.
