Brevard Schools chief rolls out budget cut plan

Updated:

BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. - Schools in Brevard County are dealing with financial problems.

The school system's superintendent rolled out his proposed budget cuts, and revenue enhancement plan, on Friday.

The plan calls for as much as $38 million in cuts.

The current proposal calls for cuts to staff, additional fees and closing four schools.

Many parents and teachers hope that the suggested school closures will be a last resort.

"We're worried about the kids. Keep the community school a community school and figure out what to do somewhere else," said teacher Angel Tatum.

The school board is expected to take action on the proposed school closures in January.
