To handle a $7.75M cut in requested local funding, Dr. Hatrick recommended today that the School Board take the majority of the cuts from the transportation department by holding the number of buses and bus drivers at this year's level. His proposal keeps the full 3% pay raise for all LCPS employees and holds class size at the current levels.
In his letter to the Board, Dr. Hatrick also recommends reducing contractual services for special education, overtime funds, administrative technology investments, and funds set aside for legal expenses.
The school board will meet on Wednesday April 13th to consider Dr. Hatrick's proposals. Please take a few minutes this week to look at the changes and let your representatives on the School Board know your thoughts.
