If Brunswick Co. Can Do It....

I used this information here to estimate that Brunswick Co. schools have a budget of about $101M.  That's about $20M less than the city of Wilmington.

Folks, if Brunswick can make these cuts and see the necessity for it, so can we.

School leaders in Brunswick County voted Tuesday night to slash $5.7 million out of its budget. The action was approved by a 3-2 vote.
As part of the plan to save money, the district is also adopting staggered start times.
Elementary schools in the district will start at 7:45 a.m., middle schools will begin at 8:50 a.m. and high schools will start at 8:55 a.m.
The move will save the district $525,000 a year. It will also allow the district to take 30 buses off the road and offer some drivers full time positions.
