NATCHEZ, Mississippi — The Natchez-Adams School District may ask taxpayers for more money next year.
School board President Wayne Barnett says the question is how much.
The Natchez Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/13ovqQD) that Superintendent Frederick Hill has presented the school board a revised budget proposal that includes $550,468 in cuts.
The district is running a deficit of $911,906.
Hill proposes eliminating several coaching vacancies and cutting travel and administrative salaries by 10 percent.
Hill says he can save another $300,763 by requiring all district employees to take a three-day unpaid leave. Hill says that would leave the deficit at $60,000.
He says additional days of unpaid leave would save the district more money.
The school board meets on June 13 to look at the budget issue again.
