Massive Budget Cuts To Hit Summerville High School District

Tuolumne, CA — Massive budget cuts are on the way for the Summerville Union High School District.

Superintendent Dr. John Keiter and his Board are looking to cut $324,000 this year and $376,000 the following year due to the inaction of the Sacramento legislature.

Meeting last week the Budget Advisory Committee brainstormed a number of ideas including sharing services with other districts, charging for transportation, eliminating late bus service, eliminating small classes, cutting tutoring and reducing academic counseling.

The Budget Advisory Committe’s next meeting is scheduled for Thursday, February 19 at 6pm in the school library.
