More Cuts In Store For Calaveras County Schools

Calaveras County Unified School district is working on cutting about two million dollars from their budget, without laying off teachers.

Jim Frost is the superintendent there… and says they´re doing everything they can to keep the kids from noticing the cuts.

“We´re trying to keep the cuts as far away from the classroom as possible. We´re probably going to do less in transportation services, we´re probably going to do less classroom support as far as aide time,” says superintendent Frost.

And Frost adds while Bret Harte Union School District is considering a fee for student transportation…

“That´s difficult for us, because you can´t charge special ed students, you can´t charge kids with free and reduced lunch, and that´s a big part of our ridership.”
