An agreement not to lay off teachers added to an anticipated drop in district enrollment has the Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) in a financial squeeze for next school year.

At a school board meeting Tuesday night, teachers and their union expressed their displeasure at cuts expected to be made to the budgets at many of the district’s schools.

Under Student-Based Budgeting (SBB), decisions are made at the building level rather than from the central administration offices. The system has funding for each building dependent on enrollment; the funding dollars follow the student.

When enrollment drops, the budget drops at the individual schools.

“When school budgets are shredded in this way, it is obviously not a matter of determining what a school needs but what a school must cut,” said Cleveland Teachers Union President David Quolke.
