Superintendent makes dollar squeezing presentation to RISD board

(Rockwall Herald Banner) ROCKWALL – Superintendent Jeff Bailey gave a “dollar squeezing” presentation to the Rockwall Independent School District’s Board of Trustees Monday night, detailing options that could help the school district deal with possible state funding cuts projected to range between $15.1 million and $23.9 million the next school year.

Board members already have taken action to save $1.8 million by reducing the work force. That action could lead to 20 employees losing their jobs and outsourcing for auxiliary services such as transportation and custodial.

During Monday night’s budget work session, Bailey provided details on many other options to cut expenses and generate income. Those options included the possibility of increasing class sizes and charging activity fees for students who participate in athletics, band and orchestra.
