WISD Administrators Working Overtime to Prepare for Less Funding from the State

February 21, 2011 by Anonymous

WISD Director of Communications

Weatherford ISD administrators have spent many sleepless nights over the past six weeks trying to figure out how the District plans on opening its doors next school year if state legislators take away as much as $10 billion in educational funding cuts, according to statewide school finance and accountability experts Moak, Casey & Associates.
Dr. Deborah Cron, Weatherford ISD Superintendent of Schools, said the District has been handling the state’s financial crisis internally with its staff members and also mentioned the possibility of having to make significant personnel cuts, if necessary. Currently, the District stands to lose as much as $11 million in state funding based on a 19-percent budget reduction from the state.
