Doesn’t the flexibility offered by the new state budget allow the district to avoid layoffs?
With the need to cut the general fund budget by 10 percent, the flexibility will not allow the district to avoid layoffs. The hope is that reductions-in-force can be minimized, but the district will need to make some staffing reductions in order to support other services that are being adversely affected by the severe budget cuts made by the state.

- Why doesn’t the District use their general fund budget to pay for school replacement and major repairs?
- How is the Spring Hill School District affected by the state’s budget shortfall?
