KENOSHA, WI (WLIP)–Kenosha Unified is considering major budget cuts in the wake of the on-going enrollment crisis.
Among the cuts is an elementary school. KUSD administration is recommending the closure of Wilson Elementary School.
The move would reportedly save the district $1.2 million dollars of a $9.6 million dollar deficit.
Also included is $2 million district-wide staff reduction, as well as a phase out of KUSD’s contribution to employees’ health savings accounts.
The cuts are thought to be a “worst-case” scenario if the state legislature fails to increase state aid to schools.
The school board is set to consider the cuts at tonight’s meeting.
