Del Mar school district facing possible budget cuts

By Karen Billing

The Del Mar Union School District board is considering possible reductions for its 2011-12 budget, as the district could be looking at a $3.8 million deficit. At the board’s May 25 meeting, district Superintendent Jim Peabody gave the board a list of possible reductions the district may need to take in August once the board gets a clearer picture of property tax revenues and state contributions.

“Some on the list would be hard, some impossible, all would be upsetting to do,” Peabody said. “But if we have to make difficult decisions because of a lack of revenue or continued requirements for revenue from us, we have to start getting ready.”

Peabody said the district has already made the decision against any teacher layoffs this year to keep the staff as intact as possible, which leaves the option of tightening up expenditures in district services.

Items on the list include eliminating district cell phones, “reorganizing” library services, salary reductions, furlough days and increased class sizes.
