Supt. Jan Brandhorst will walk the public through the numbers with graphics, and explain state requirements for fulfilling curriculm mandates.
Since Brandhorst has been the Superintendent, the district has reduced spending by around $900,000 and there isn't a lot of leeway to cut much more out of the curriculm/staff. The board has also thought of closing the Cleghorn building, but space in Marcus would be limited. Also the certified staff has asked for a package which would consist of a 7.5 percent increase.
The board is also considering raising taxes and sharing personnel with neighboring districts. The board is hoping for a good crowd, as what the board decides will be influenced by input from the public.
