School Budget Cuts
Hundreds of students in Colorado will be enjoying permanent three-day weekends after the Garfield School District Re-2 School Board has voted to cut the learning week down to four days.
The school board in Eagle County voted Wednesday afternoon to lay off nearly 15 percent of its staff. They are drastic cuts for what has been a very successful district.
Pueblo County school employees will forego raises this year and take two furlough days because of budget cuts.
Opponents of school budget cuts are making their case at the state Capitol. They plan to deliver a letter signed by over 5,200 people to state lawmakers and the governor on Monday.
