Until area school districts get some answers from the state on possible budget cuts, school officials are preparing for the worst. School leaders in Pender County have been working on a budget plan, preparing the county for an 11 percent reduction in state funding. That translates to a four million dollar loss for schools. That means the loss of numerous teachers and teaching assistants, administrators, and a reduction in central office staff. Other impacts may include consolidating bus routes, cutting out days in the school year, to college prep course programs.
