Federal money insulated Willmar from 2010 budget cuts, will be felt in 2011-12

Email

WILLMAR -- The Willmar School District was insulated from the impact of last year's budget cuts through a one-time infusion of more than $900,000 in federal money.

However, most of that money is now gone.

The district spent $737,000 this year to hire classroom teachers to keep a lid on class sizes. A variety of other instructional staff members were hired to work with students who were struggling in reading and math.
