North Judson-San Pierre School Board Continues to Study Budget for Cuts


The North Judson-San Pierre School Board continues to find ways to cut $1.2 million from the general fund in the corporation’s budget.

Superintendent Lynn Johnson said a budget work session was held last week to tackle this issue.

“We’re still in the process of making reductions,” stated Johnson. “We did have some retirements this year and so that does help with the budget. Some of the budget reductions will be basically a half of a year because we’re just talking just half of the year in 2014. In 2015, you’ll have the whole year’s advantage. We’re looking at making final recommendations at the May 20 meeting.”

In a previous setting, it was stressed that the board was wanting to cut positions rather than jobs. Several retirements are expected and those positions will likely go unfilled for the next school year. Again, a final recommendation will be discussed during the board’s next meeting.
