Lakota district braces for state education cuts

By Tiffany Teasley – bio | email

WEST CHESTER, OH (FOX19) -- On the eve of Gov. Kasich's financial plan for education, the Lakota school district is on pins and needles.

"We're looking forward to hearing what the Governor has to say, and we're expecting things to get worse before they get better,"' said Interim Superintendent Ron Spurlock.
  
"We are hearing that we will have anywhere from a 10 to a 30 percent decrease for the next biennium, our assumption right now is that it's probably going to be closer to a 15 percent reduction," Spurlock said.
 
It's a district that's already cut high school bussing, staff, some athletics and has $12 million more they're about to shave from their  current budget.
 
"If this goes through we will have reduced our budget by $25 million in the past 2.5 years, so it's significantly impacted they way we do business at Lakota," Spurlock said.
 
Spurlock says they won't know right away how the cuts will impact the district, but they have already made some changes in anticipation of the cuts.
 
"We are right now making plans and projections as to what we think the reduction will be so we have some ideas in place, but it won't be until it goes to ODE before we'll actually find out the details, and what that will specifically mean to Lakota," Spurlock said.
