Calaveras Unified’s Budget Reduction Proposal outlines a list of cuts including the elimination of sports and music at the middle school and high school level and consolidating Rail Road Flat, West Point and Mokelumne Hill elementary schools. Each school has under 100 students and according to the proposed plan several teaching positions and a principal can be eliminated. Superintendent Campbell says class sizes will be 30 students to one teacher.
The school board needs to accept a balanced 2015-2016 spending plan at its September 2nd meeting. If they do not have a plan approved and submitted to the county office by September 8th the State will step in and make necessary cuts.
