District to absorb state shortfall

July 6, 2011

When considering their next budget, Big Spring Independent School District officials can at least say that things could be worse.

BSISD, like other Texas school districts, will have to cope with a significant loss of revenue, thanks to the state legislature's decision to slash $4 billion in aid to schools over the next two years.
