The Genoa School District has begun a wave of extensive spending cuts, including the loss of one teacher this year and a custodian next year.

And one of the biggest changes families will have to endure is a new charge for all-day, everyday kindergarten beginning in fiscal year 2013. Parents of kindergarteners will have to fork out $100 per month beginning that school year for students to attend all day classes.

Genoa High School students will return next fall to a newly-remodeled science lab.

Genoa Board of Education members recently approved three contracts for the renovation that will take place this summer after the 2010-11 school year ends, according to treasurer Bill Nye.  Completion is set for Aug. 26.
