Cuts are certainly in the offing in the Woodridge school district.
Voters turned back an emergency 6.83 mill emergency operating levy on the Tuesday ballot by a 249 vote margin, nearly identical to the margin of defeat of the district's previous levy attempt.
Woodridge superintendent Walter Davis says the district is heading for an "insurmountable" deficit of over 5 millon dollars.
But he says the district doesn't just need to bring in new revenue.
"But we're also going to have to make some reductions, change some of the ways we do business," Davis tells AkronNewsNow.com. "We're going to be looking at all sorts of budget reduction options, there likely will be an emergency school board meeting in the next few days so the board will think about the chance of what we want to do next."
But Davis says the key for Woodridge school board will be to go to the community before any decisons are made about moving forward.
"We'd really like to get as many folks in as we can, both positive and negative voters," Davis tells AkronNewsNow.com, "to get a sense of what they're feeling, and what they'd like to see us do as we move forward."
