No budget cuts yet for school districts

The Department of Public Instruction released estimates for school funding for the 2020-2021 academic year. Unlike other sectors of the economy, education is escaping budget cuts in the near term. Luxemburg-Casco Superintendent Glenn Schlender says uncertainty actually helped in this case.


Schlender says the concern is that the state could make up for holding steady now with deeper cuts in the future, possibly in 2021-2022. Federal stimulus during the last recession allowed districts to patch funding shortfalls temporarily, but by 2011 layoffs hit hard prolonging the employment consequences from the financial panic.
