School Board approves district budget
The West Linn-Wilsonville School Board approved the budget for the school district's upcoming fiscal year during a meeting June 29, with no changes from the initial proposal.
The budget includes a reduction of 16 full-time employees and 54 staff hours but the district hasn't yet identified where cuts will be made. It is making these cuts in response to a projected revenue shortfall of $7.5 million from the state government because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The district is also reducing professional development, individual school budgets and is suspending plans to renew its curriculum to save money.
