school children in classroom Minneapolis Schools Trim Budget

The Minneapolis School District is cutting almost ten percent of its operations budget.  It’s closing schools, trimming salaries and laying people off, including janitors. Part of the plan includes shortening the hours of the schools’ janitors from 8 hours to 7 1/2 hours per day.

A school district spokesman says given the current budget problems and projected shortfalls at the state level, this likely isn’t the last of cuts in Minneapolis schools.
