Marquette School Budget Session

School systems across the state, and across the U.P., have a lot of concerns about their budgets for this fall.

The Marquette Area Public Schools are in that category.

The district is facing a $2.5 million budget shortfall for the next school year.

In a series of budget work sessions, the Marquette school board will examine how it can cut costs.

The first of those work sessions is tonight at 6:30 at Graveraet School.

The board is looking at staff reductions, either through retirements or layoffs.

Kristina Kuestner will be there tonight, and she’ll bring you an update on what went on during ABC 10 News Now at 11pm.
