St. Paul Schools Face Cuts If Levy Not Approved

ST. PAUL (WCCO) — St. Paul Public Schools are asking voters to approve an upcoming levy, or they may be facing some major cuts.

The district’s superintendent, Valeria Silva, outlined the possible cuts Thursday.

Silva said if voters reject a renewal or increase the district could have to make $30 million in cuts.

That would include ending all-day kindergarten and the district’s preschool program. The district said 1,000 students use those programs.

A committee will begin meeting in January to discuss levy options.

The current operating levy for St. Paul schools expires in 2013.
