Bemidji School Board meeting to hear budget projections and more

The Bemidji Area School Board will meet this evening and make more decisions on how to avoid a statutory operating debt.

The district is looking to cut around $5.6 million from their budget to restore a positive fund and avoid having the state make the decisions in budget cuts.

The board will hold a second reading and adoption of a revised school board resolution increasing admission and activity fees.

The board will also hear another budget projection as well as discuss the elementary school boundary changes.
