Schools Notified of Budget Cuts

Officials with the Murray Independent School District and the Calloway County Schools say they are not happy with a 2 percent budget cut for the current school year and plans for an additional cut for 2012-13. Murray Superintendent Bob Rogers said he was notified by Kentucky Department of Education officials about a mid-year reduction in state funding of $157,294. In a release to superintendents across the state, KDE officials reported receiving notification from Mary E. Lassiter, state budget director, that a mid-year budget cut will be necessary.
