School Board to give details of deficit-reduction plan next week

2 years, 10 months ago by Bob Gough, QuincyJournal.com

The Quincy School Board met for about four hours in closed session special meeting Wednesday night to discuss its deficit-reduction plan.

The Board will present those details at its regularly scheduled February meeting next Wednesday.

The Quincy School District is under orders from the Illinois State Board of Education to put together the plan as it is dealing with a $2.2 million deficit in the education fund left over from the previous fiscal year.

The School District voted to issue $6.2 million in working cash bonds in November, but that was forced onto the March 20 ballot by a petition drive.

The Board will be making decisions regarding staffing for the 2012-2013 school year at its March 21 meeting.

The Board took no formal action at Wednesday night’s meeting.
