BEAVERTON, Ore. -- The Beaverton School District is the latest to release its budget proposal for the upcoming school year, and if it’s approved more than 300 people could be out of work.
The superintendent laid out the cuts at Sunset High School Thursday night in front of a packed auditorium..
The district needs to almost cut $37 million. Under the proposed plan, the biggest change for kids would be larger class sizes.
Kindergarten classes would have one teacher for every 28 students. For first through fifth grades, as well as middle schools and high schools, the number jumps up to 30 students per teacher.
The district would also see cuts to assistant principals, counselors, librarians, secretaries and safety monitors.
And golf and water polo would no longer receive district funding..
The budget must be in place by June. Parents can comment during another meeting at Sunset High School on May 1.
There are roughly 39,000 students in the Beaverton School District
Teachers in the Gresham-Barlow school district could walk off the job next week if they don't get new deals.
