On Tuesday, parents across the metro readied their kids for a new school year.
This new school year comes with some changes for students and staff at St. Paul Public Schools.
This summer, the district made millions of dollars in cuts to help balance a budget shortfall. Most programs district-wide will be trimmed by about 5 percent, district leaders said.
District officials also said just over 100 staff members, teachers included, won't be back this year.
Meanwhile, officials said for the first time in years, enrollment is up and the student population is expected to be nearly 35,000.
