QPS Board forced to make additional budget cuts

Posted: Updated:

QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -- More budget cuts are coming for the Quincy Public School District.

The school board learned it will receive a half a million dollars less from the state than originally planned.  So now, principals around the district are being asked to cut costs by twenty percent.

This comes just months after the district slashed $1 million dollars from its budget including teacher layoffs.

Wednesday night, the board voted to eliminate increases to the staff pre-retirement program.

A special meeting has been called to vote on more cuts to the final budget next Wednesday.

The public is invited to attend.

More details are coming up tonight on WGEM News.
