NATCHEZ, Mississippi — Natchez-Adams School District officials are looking to identify nearly $900,000 in expenses to cut from the district's budget.
Those cuts will come after the district already cut $1 million in anticipated expenses across various district departments.
The cuts were determined when district officials mapped out mandatory expenses to operate the district and examined what was left behind across the various departments.
Board president Wayne Barnett tells The Natchez Democrat (http://bit.ly/19ToHAm) the district's current financial woes could be mainly attributed to being consistently under funded by the state.
The state will provide the district with $15 million — a $330,000 decrease from what the state gave the district last year. Hill says the decrease in funding is believed to be because of a lower projected enrollment for the upcoming school year.
