In all, 156 million dollars was cut by the state that would have supported teacher pay raises for the upcoming school year. In Kingpsort, Assistant Superintendent Andy True says next years budget has already been approved by BOE members, and they are aware of the state cuts and have already started conversations about the potential impact on the schools systems spending document. True, went on to say a decrease in revenues will require the school systems to explore how to best address the plan for next year.
