A supplementary levy is on the August ballot for the Plummer-Worley School District, if it fails the district is faced with cutting all athletics and adopting a four day school week.
Since 2007, the district has lost $1.7 million in federal funding and has already made $1.3 million in staffing cuts. The district first attempt at a supplemental levy failed in May. Because of this, the school board already had to make drastic cuts to zero out budget.
“I don't think people really understand how serious our budget issues are,” said Superintendent Judi Sharrett. But now, with the newest cuts announced Sharrett thinks the community is starting to get the message.
