DEVELOPING: Merrill school leaders make $825,000 in cuts

Posted:

MERRILL (WAOW)--Like most area school districts, members of the Merrill School Board are looking at ways to cut spending in the face of a $750,000 budget shortfall.

So far, three teaching positions will be cut and students will pay a new $30 for registration and technology expenses. Administrators hope the fee will generate an addition $60,000.

School leaders have made a total of $825,000 in cuts.

Newsline 9's Colby Robertson is in Merrill. She'll have more details about the cuts and new fees on Newsline 9 at 5, 6 and 10.
