Red Wing School Board Budget Cuts

The Red Wing School Board met Monday and discussed ways to address a projected shortfall of $2.3 million in the 2024-2025 budget.


The board voted to approve contract non-renewals for 8 full-time equivalent (FTE) staff positions for the 2025 fiscal year, which begins July 1. 

The district’s director of finance and operations, Lisa Rider, told the board reducing staff is necessary.


Rider says the district will no more about how the non-renewals will effect each school after the next set of enrollment numbers get reviewed.


Total possible proposed cuts the board discussed Monday amounts to 2,281,623, which is $51,878 more than the number needed to balance the budget.


The board will address more cuts at their next meeting.   


The district held a community budget forum on April 23 and 41 people attended and 229 people responded to a survey to gather the public's suggestions on potential expenditure reductions, revenue opportunities and efficiency measures.
