The Nampa School District faces a multi-million dollar shortfall. The number was originally $2.8 million. Within the last week revised figures show the gap to be an estimated $4.5 million.
Longtime superintendent Gary Larsen resigned one week ago citing the district's fiscal crisis was in more trouble than originally thought
Monday, a budget committee met behind closed doors to discuss additional ways to compensate for the shortfall.
"The areas that we have that we can make changes are kind of small," school district spokeswoman Allison Westfall said. "The committee plans to be looking at that. One of the things they do is solicit ideas from staff and from the public and they vet those ideas."
In August when the district first announced the shortfall, it slashed 39 full time positions and now relies on volunteer substitutes.
