STILLWATER, Minn. (WCCO) — A budget committee has finalized another $10 million in recommended cuts for the Stillwater Area School District.

It includes eliminating band for fifth and sixth graders.

The cuts would also increase class size for elementary schools and start charging parents for all-day kindergarten.

A final vote is expected on March 8.

The district has already approved $2 million in cuts, but most of those came through changes in staffing.
