Committee Approves Difficult 2012-13 Budget
Faced with some difficult scenarios, the Bethel Budget Committee has approved a budget that falls $3.3 million short of maintaining the District’s current program levels.
The Budget Committee again used a combination of cuts to staffing and supplies, employee wage concessions, and the use of reserve funds to make up the difference.
The exact number of positions that will be lost hasn’t been determined but every Bethel school and department will be impacted.
The budget for the 2012-13 school year, which still needs to be adopted by the School Board, includes an expectation of 10 budget reduction days for teachers and even more furlough days for administrators.
