$14 million to be cut from district budget

By Emile Hallez

Jeffco Public Schools would cut 136 employee positions under a proposed budget rolled out May 13 that cuts $14 million over the previous year’s spending.

Increased class sizes, higher athletic fees, fewer transportation routes and reduced choices for electives would result from the budget, which was designed in the face of massive cuts in state funding.

“Jeffco will look different,” said chief financial officer Lori Gillis, who presented the budget to the Board of Education. “There will be larger class sizes … less classroom support.”
