Sacramento schools’ money trouble just got worse: $48 million in cuts over two years

The Sacramento City Unified School District is even more in the red than previously thought: By 2020, the district will have a structural deficit of $48 million by 2020 if cuts aren’t made, a gap that’s almost $12 million more than announced in June, and $8 million more than the district’s most recent estimates.

“It’s not what we like to hear but it’s the truth,” said district spokesperson Alex Barrios.

The district estimates it must make $28.5 million in cuts for the next school year, and another $19.5 million the following year to close the gap. But where those cuts will be made has yet to be released, even as a county-set deadline to submit a detailed budget is fast approaching.
