April 10, 2019

BEMIDJI—As Bemidji Area Schools gets a handle on a projected $1.3 million budget deficit, school district administrators Monday said they've thus far identified about $900,000 in staffing reductions.

Those potential reductions consist of a $600,000 net cut to spending on licensed employees—teachers, principals, etc.—and a $300,000 cut on non-licensed employees, district staff said Monday at a special School Board meeting. Board members took no formal vote or action to enact any of the cuts, but they're scheduled to formally consider them at their regular meeting on Monday, April 15.
