Oregon schools - Board poised to cut $2 million if levy fails
Written by Larry Limpf

The Oregon school board will slash $2 million from the district’s operating budget for the 2011-12 school year if an emergency operating levy on the November ballot fails, according to a position statement the board is considering.

Superintendent Mike Zalar said Wednesday he expected the board to approve the statement at its meeting the next day. The statement outlines what cuts will be enacted if voters don’t approve the levy.

With $2 million less for operations, a total 20 teaching and support staff positions will be eliminated.

The district will also apply for a waiver from the state to reduce the kindergarten program from all-day everyday to all-day every other day.

Zalar said a plan to close one elementary school and/or reconfigure the district would immediately be implemented and the Career and Tech program offerings would be eliminated.

The position statement also says the board will:
• Increase athletic participation fees.

• Eliminate or significantly reduce bus service for all high school students, including parochial.

• Reduce cleaning services in buildings effective January, 2011.
