Balancing the budget

-A A +A

School employees asked if they would favor pay cuts over layoffs

By Tom Wilmoth

Bedford County School employees were being asked this week if they would be willing to take a pay cut, as opposed to having layoffs, to help the school system deal with a $4.9 million shortfall in next year's budget.

    The results of that survey will be used to help the school board make decisions about the 2009-2010 budget.

    The board met in a work session last week to discuss the budget and will meet again tomorrow. A proposed budget by School Superintendent Dr. James Blevins suggested cutting 80 positions next year.
