MACCRAY board will look at $100,000 budget cut


CLARA CITY -- The MACCRAY School Board is considering a $100,000 cut to its budget for the next school year.

The board discussed making the cuts at a meeting last week.

Voters in the district approved a higher operating levy last fall, and that will provide more revenue for the 2010-11 school year. However, falling enrollment and the possibility of reduced state revenue mean the district could still need to make cuts, Superintendent Greg Schmidt said Friday.
