Schools Left Hanging as States Dither on Budget Cuts; Here's What Districts Can Do


School district administrators this month have been placed in a torturous holding pattern.

There's no question that state sales and income tax revenue have plummeted because of the coronavirus pandemic and that most districts will have to swallow sizeable budget cuts in the coming months if Congress doesn't come up with another relief package. But in most states, legislatures haven't given a clue as to how much public schools will be expected to cut.

Not knowing how much money they'll have to work with this fall makes it all the more difficult for school officials to decide which contracts to renew, how many teachers to hire this fall, and when to open school back up.
