Expecting state aid cut, Waubun school board slashes district budget
Next year's budget for the Waubun-Ogema-White Earth School District was slashed by the School Board Thursday.
The board, by a 5-2 vote, cut $344,000 out of the 2009-10 budget due to fears over the loss of state revenue.
Administrators say that they don't know what the state will give them next year. Gov. Tim Pawlenty's proposed state budget left K-12 funding at current levels.
