Madison school board to take up budget

MADISON (WKOW) -- Jobs and programs could be on the line Monday night as the Madison School District looks for ways to trim its budget shortfall.

The school board has a budget workshop beginning at 5:30 p.m. and action is expected to be taken.

Over the weekend, board members heard from parents and community members on different options to make up the district's $30 million shortfall.

Last week, the board was able to whittle around $5 million off that gap.

The final budget plan for the next school year will be approved May 4.
