A total of 30 positions which help schools serve students with disabilities are reportedly getting cut. Other cuts include supervising positions at the central office.

The district is expected to get more state funding for the 2018-19 school year.

Some schools could see between $80 and $180 extra for higher needs students. Those include homeless students, those living in foster care and undocumented students.

Other budget concerns include legislative plans to shore up the pension system. DPS would need to contribute millions of dollars for retired teachers.

The final budget will be voted on by the school board in May.
