B.A. Public Schools To Axe $7 Million From Budget Due To Statewide Cuts To Education Funding

Posted: Updated:
BROKEN ARROW -

The superintendent says "difficult times call for difficult measures," and that time is now for Broken Arrow Public Schools.

B.A. will cut $7 million from its budget because of statewide cuts to education funding.

In an online survey, parents and community members can prioritize what programs should be eliminated first.

Options include cutting employee stipends, which could save $2.5 million, ending field trips, which cost the district $80,000, reducing staff travel by half, relieving the district of a quarter million dollars, reducing textbook expenditures, reducing utility costs, increasing class sizes and more.

The district even offers the option of reducing instructional programs, like the gifted and STEM programs, and cutting back on co-curricular programs, like athletics and fine arts.

Broken Arrow is just the latest school district to issue a survey like this.

The survey will close at 5:00 p.m. tomorrow.
