The Los Alamos Board of Education met in open session Friday to discuss critical issues involving the district’s $1.8 million 2010-2011 school year operating budget shortfall - leading to a potentially long list of cuts.
“Two factors drive this reduction in revenues,” LAPS Business Manager John Wolfe said. “First, the state is receiving less revenue than anticipated and despite working during the recent legislative session to raise taxes and implement other measures, revenues will fall short.
