Feb 2, 2013 06:38 PM EST
The Charlottesville City School Board is considering some excruciating budget cuts for next school year to make up for an almost $1.5 million dollar shortfall.
Board members gathered at Walker-Upper Elementary School for a budget work session Saturday morning. Big ticket items up for discussion include the AVID program, the three-year-old program, and several administrative positions.
"After going through five years of declining and cutting and deficits and bridging those gaps, we now are at a point that every recommendation for a cut is painful, and engages the board in great discussion about what impact will it have," said Charlottesville City Schools Superintendent Rosa Atkins.
Atkins says the goal is to make cuts as far away from the classroom as possible to minimize the effects on teachers and students.
The board is expected to approve a budget at the end of this month.
