At the request of the Governor, the state Department of Public Instruction is expected to reduce state funding for all school systems by 3 percent for the next school year.  Some of the cuts would include a reduction of extra-duty and an increase in the students-to-teacher ratio.  Also, principals have been given a memo to implement a hiring freeze of all central sevices and school-based positions, except special ed.  The freeze also affects new hires and re-hires for the 2010-2011 school year.
