Trinity, C-M facing budget problems

Trinity School Board is considering sweeping cuts totaling $2 1/2 million, including 25 staff positions, to meet its 2011-12 operating budget.

Among the measures the board discussed at a finance committee meeting this afternoon include requiring high school students to pay to play sports as well as participate in the band. The board discussed levying a $50 fee per student, per sport.

Also back on the table is eliminating full-day kindergarten and eliminating middle school sports.

The 25 staff members that may be eliminated include teachers, administrators and clerical workers.
