Stillwater District prepares to cut $4 million from budget

Despite the passing of a $16.2 million levy last fall, Stillwater Public Schools is expected to cut several million dollars from next year’s budget.
School board members met on Thursday, March 6, to direct staff to compile a list of possible budget adjustments and cuts for the 2014-15 school year, which will total a projected $4 million. The board is scheduled to vote on the reductions at its March 13 meeting.


Voters approve Stillwater District tax levy

This Election Day, residents living in the Stillwater Area Public School District voted to renew and increase the district’s tax levy.
About 63 percent of the voters, or about 9,111 of 14,396 votes cast, voted in favor of the $16.2 million levy, which district officials have said will have a three-fold impact: providing financial stability for schools by supporting current programs and avoiding more budget cuts; supporting the district’s “Bridge to Excellence” plan, and creating safer schools through a series of security upgrades.
