Current ideas include eliminating 15 teachers jobs, 10 paraprofessionals and 14 special ed bus drivers and riders.

Members of the Jackson Education Support Personel Administration say they've already sacraficed in the form of 51 jobs the last time cuts were made.

JESPA President Doreen Wilmoth says if job cuts are to be made, they should start at the administrative level.

Superintendent Dan Evans says he knows it's tough on employees... but, stresses they don't want to eliminate any student programs.

Although a remedial reading program which had it's funding pulled is set for the chopping block.

Nothing has been finalized... but, a budget may be decided upon by their first June meeting.
