All the ideas from the public and Fayette County School teachers on how to cut the budget 20-million dollars are now in a booklet.

School board members talked about the ideas that were brought up in two public forums, as well as suggestions sent in online.

In total, there were six hundred and seventy five participants in the public forums and one hundred and ten suggestions submitted online.

The big issues most people were concerned with were keeping school programs, maintaining a good teacher to student ratio, keeping quality teachers, and keeping the budget process transparent.

Superintendent Tom Shelton says he appreciates the public's input and hopes to bring the public forums back next year.
