Money Matters

The city schools are getting nearly a million dollars more from the state and federal governments combined, but most of that is due to an increase in enrollment.

In order to meet the budget requirements, the school board will have to ask city council for $2.2 million.

And Superintendent Donald Ford says that's not likely to happen.

Ford will consider cutting some of the 32 new positions needed by the school system.

Most of those are special education and English as a Second Language.
