Although nothing will be finalized until May, the Menomonee Falls School District is anticipating no more than 5.5 full time employee layoffs at the end of the school year.
The announcement was made during the Menomonee Falls School Board meeting Monday night while Superintendent Patricia Greco lead the final discussion on the 2012-2013 preliminary budget. When the budget was first looked at months ago, the district was projecting between seven to 12 layoffs, however, as numbers become more finalized that number was reduced.
The board will vote on the preliminary budget May 14.
"We have a little bit of time before we have to declare final layoffs so we will continue to watch that," Greco said.
The district will have a balanced budget for the upcoming year and is anticipating a .5 percent mill levy reduction in fall, which equals a 5 cent reduction per $1,000 of property value in the mill rate.
