BP: With co-op off the table, Laporte outlines $252,000 in budget cuts


April 25, 2019

LAPORTE—After a meeting earlier this month where many parents and other community members said they opposed a potential athletic co-op with a neighboring district, Laporte Public School leaders on Monday outlined about $252,000 worth of spending cuts, many of which School Board members had already enacted, and new revenue streams, some tentative, that could bring in more than $100,000.

The cuts mean the district won't replace four retiring paraprofessionals and a special education teacher whom they had previously let go. It also means eliminating the school's cross country team, cutting back on custodial work and the school newsletter, and opting not to pay for a part-time mentor for a science teacher and a new round of smartboards.
