School Closures and Consolidations Likely Amidst Lubbock ISD Budget Cuts

Dr. Karen Garza (lubbockisd.org)

KFYO has received reports of at least two possible school closures within Lubbock ISD to help make up for a possible $10 million or more budget cuts from the state.

Lubbock ISD has already cut 87 full and part-time positions at Central office to meet the upcoming cuts. The LISD Board of Trustees approved the cost-cutting force reduction measure last Thursday, which will result in $3.5 million in savings for next year’s budget, leaving 6 and a half million dollars left for the district to trim from their expenses.

According to LISD Director of Communications and Community Relations Nancy Sharp, the district is looking at ways to increase efficiency, and no schools have been publicly slated for closure as of yet. Sharp said that the district plans to hold community conversations after the spring break holiday next week, to get citizen input on possible closures.
