School board eyes $12 million in cuts in 2009-10

Jefferson County Public Schools will probably have to do without the district’s planetarium beginning next school year.

Thanks to the failure of the $350 million bond issue and the $35-million-a-year tax increase, the 40-year-old planetarium will be closed indefinitely as part of a long list of budget cuts contemplated by the school board and school administration for next year and beyond.

The biggest impact will come in staff reductions, which are expected to reach a total of nearly 300 over the next three years.
