SLPS will approve layoffs, other cuts to trim $2.2 million

In a move to cut $2.2 million from the district budget, the Spring Lake school board is expected to approve staff layoffs and other changes when it meets on Monday. The decision comes after the state House of Representatives passed a cut to education funding that could shave as much as $297 per student - on top of a $170 per-student cut already scheduled, The Associated Press reported. State lawmakers are also considering a plan to fund state universities and community colleges out of the state's K-12 fund.

Superintendent Dennis Furton said the district will be cutting staff from all areas, including teaching staff. In some cases, this will affect class size, he said.
