When it comes to balancing the district budget, the Detroit Lakes School board hasn't had much to smile about lately.

Acting on a recommendation from Superintendent Lowell Niklaus, the board approved nearly $330,000 in cost containments at its regular meeting Monday night.


Though all of the recommended cuts had been discussed at previous meetings, the bottom line was significantly higher than the $200,000 in cuts originally projected at the December school board meeting.
