District may need to cut $1.4M from budget; that could be just the beginning


WILLMAR -- The Willmar School District is planning another round of budget cuts before the 2010-11 school year.

Early estimates are that the district may need to cut $1.4 million from its budget, but that could be just the beginning.

Depending on how the state handles school funding issues in the next year, Willmar and most other districts in the state could see anticipated revenue fall far short of their needs.
