Jackson Schools already approved a $3.1 million dollar cut, but now comes all the detail behind the trimming including four administrator positions.

Tonight the Jackson School Board voted to cut two principal positions at the high school, and two other administrators saving at least $200,000.

In the middle schools and high school there are currently grade principals and a head principal per building.

The assistant superintendent of schools suggested this vote could mean a grade principal in the middle schools and one in the high school could double up on the title -- head principal.

In the past weeks Wilson Elementary was on the chopping block then eluded the budget ax.

Going forward, Superintendent Dan Evans will be monitoring it's success as a magnet school.

He says next year the building could find itself again in budget jeopardy if it has low attendance.
