BOZEMAN - If the sequester cuts go into effect this Friday, the Bozeman School District will lose federal funding.
The school district estimates it will lose about $200,000 a year that normally would go to special education and programs for lower income children. The programs for lower income children would see cuts, but because of federal mandates, special education funding cannot be cut. So, money to pay for those programs would come from the general find.
"We'll have to make cuts in other areas to accommodate special needs funding," said deputy superintendent Steve Johnson.
There is no word yet on what might get cut. Any cuts would not take effect until next school year.
