In an effort to close a structural deficit in the district’s budget, the school board is looking at several options to save money. At the same meeting, the board voted unanimously on a plan to change transportation policy and routes that would save the district a projected $74,000 per year, according to Furton.
Board Treasurer Lisa Ashcraft told the board that she was not opposed to seeking bids for proposals, but she felt that Ted Rescorla, the district’s new maintenance supervisor, should have more time to find ways to save money on school maintenance. The district shares Rescorla’s services with Grand Haven Area Public Schools.
