School budget shortfall

MASON CITY, Iowa - A local school board is finding that some major cuts are needed, so they’re looking for public input.

The Mason City School District must cut two million dollars next school year.

On the chopping block are jobs along with a salary freeze and transportation cuts.

Superintendent Dr. Anita Micich says it’s not an easy situation.

“Now this is one that’s really going to affect more people and more of their lives it isn’t a position it’s your commitment to serving children whoever you are in our district and that’s why it’s much more difficult,” said Micich.

Micich says no final decision has been made about who or what will be cut.

But they have until April 30th to notify teachers who may be on the budget reduction list.
