Because of funding shuffling, the district is now covering the amount expected to maintain staffing for the 20-21 school year.  A notice was given to school administration that staffing must be cut by .4 FTE for the 21-22 school year unless the school can find a way to fund the lacking amount.  It was proposed to the council that rather than determine ways to spend the money for staffing this school year, it would instead be rolled over to next year to help maintain the potential cut.  This decision was voted on unanimously by all council members.
