Washoe Schools' budget falls short $30 million
RENO, Nev. (News 4 & Fox 11) —
New controversy is surrounding the Washoe County School District as their budget falls short $30 million.
Officials say the school district’s "rainy day" saving funds have run out. These emergency savings -- and other temporary money-saving measures that WCSD has used in the past to avoid larger cuts -- are no longer available.
Because of the budget deficit, Superintendent Traci Davis says there is a chance class sizes could increase in the next school year. However, nothing has been decided up to this point.
To join in on the discussion and hear what officials are saying, the public is invited to two meetings. The dates and information is listed below.
Thursday, March 16 at 8 a.m.
- Damonte Ranch High School
Thursday, April 6 at 6 p.m.
- Wooster High School
