The largest school district in our state is cutting $7.5 million from its 2014-2015 budget. The Anoka-Hennepin School Board approved the cuts Monday night.

A majority of the reductions, $4 million, come from the elimination of budget contingency monies. Thirty full time positions will be eliminated, saving an additional $2 million.

The remaining $1.5 million in cuts will come from things like reducing staff development funding and restructuring departments.

The district hesitated to make cuts last year since there were several unknowns as the legislature hashed out new budget formulas.
