School Cuts To Deal With Budget Issues

Cuts in teacher salaries, overtime and funding for extra curricular activities are just some of the ways one school district plans to deal with less funding.

The 22.7 million dollar budget approved by the Carteret County school board also includes an increase in school lunch prices. The proposed budget also cuts some positions, but interim superintendent Jeanne Huntley hopes attrition will help lessen the blow.

The school board hopes federal stimulus money from the government will make these cuts less drastic. Carteret county schools is currently under a hiring freeze.
