The New Hanover County School Board has a tough task ahead of it. A work session starts at 5:30 p.m., to discuss the school district’s budget.

The finance committee will give its recommendations for next year’s budget. Board members will be able to ask questions and make their own recommendations.

One proposal generating a lot of discussion is changing around the bus system, to save hundreds of thousands of dollars a year, but it would also make the high school start time earlier at 7:00 a.m.

“I don’t want to see high school students going to school that early and I don’t want to see elementary school students going to school that early,” said Elizabeth Redenbaugh of the NHC School Board. “That means they would have to get to the bus stop, the earliest projected time is 6:00 a.m., but that’s ridiculous.”

Redenbaugh said one option she wants to explore, would include cutting some staff, and salaries, from the athletics department.
