As another cliff approaches….

February 26, 2013

The automatic spending cut sequestration is on the mind today of the Oconee County superintendent of education. Dr. Mike Lucas is worried that spending cuts beginning Friday will impact what Oconee County spends for public education, beginning with the federal government’s next budget year starting this fall. Lucas is hoping for political compromise. Without, he blogs, a number of Oconee education services are likely to be affected—-including instruction for students with disabilities, funding for schools with poor children, and subsidies to cover free or reduced price lunches. “Although we’re not anticipating immediate cuts, we will have to make decisions this spring based on revenues beginning October 1, 2013.
