Bainbridge schools facing $1 million in cuts

The Bainbridge school board will begin a new round of budget cuts on Thursday to offset an estimated $1 million in losses for upcoming school year.

School administrators say they’ll almost certainly cut staff and reduce programs.

This latest round of cuts is compounded by a 10 percent reduction spread over the last two years.

School administrators are planning a 10-minute discussion on what they’re calling a “fiscal emergency” at Thursday’s board meeting (5:30 p.m. at the Bainbridge High School library).
