State officials are telling schools to brace for one more round of cuts before summer.
State Superintendent Joy Hofmeister told districts $13 to 17 million will be cut from school funding in the next month.
"This is really going to be gut-wrenching for districts to receive this news at this time at such a truly large amount of money,” Hofmeister said.
That will affect schools' abilities to pay their bills, and may force them to dip into any savings they may have. Hofmeister blamed the cuts on lower-than-expected gross production tax revenue.
