Orland Unified School District Faces Cuts

The Orland Unified School District is facing a million dollar budget deficit. So school board members met this afternoon, to try and come up with a solution.

Whatever plan they decide on will be submitted to the Glenn County Office of Education.

Glenn County Schools Superintendent Tracey Quarne said cuts will have to be made.

He said those cuts generally include, relaxing the compensation of staff, delaying any future programs, and adjusting fixed costs.

He said existing programs are not likely to be cut.

“It’s going to require some concessions on the part of employees, it's going to require some belt-tightening on the part of administration, and it’s going to take a team effort. And I'm optimistic the team will achieve its goal,” Quarne said.

Quarne has to submit Oland's balanced budget to the state superintendent by October 8th.

The Orland Unified School District includes seven schools.
