LCPS Superintendent Discusses Proposed Budget Cuts

Proposed budget cuts for the 2015-16 school year would save the Las Cruces Public Schools District millions, according to district superintendent Stan Rounds.

The LCPS Board of Education will vote on the proposal later this month.

It includes three unpaid furlough days for all employees. The furloughs are expected to save the district nearly $2.1 million.

There would also be $1.1 million in cuts to the central office budget.

According to the proposal, the student to teacher ratio would increase from 16-to-1 to 19-to-1. This is expected to save the district $600,000.

The budget proposal also calls for nearly $300,000 in cuts to the transportation budget.

Five positions, including assistant principal positions at Onate and Mayfield high schools, would be eliminated.
