FREEPORT (WIFR) -- A local school district that seemed immune to deficits during the recession is now dealing with its first shortfall for the first time in nearly a decade.
The Freeport School District is looking at ways to fill a $1.6 million budget shortfall. Administrators say the district got less money from the state this year which caused the deficit.
Some options to fill the gap: Dipping into the district's education fund, but before that happens the district wants to know what we think.
There's a meeting at 7 o'clock Tuesday night at the district's administration office for us to voice our opinions.
