Marshall ISD School Board approves budget cuts

MARSHALL, TX (KSLA) -  In meeting that lasted over five hours Monday night, the Marshall Independent School District voted to approve the much talked about layoff proposal.

The layoffs mean the district is losing between five and ten percent of its faculty members. A total number of 70 positions will be eliminated.

District officials say the move was necessary to eliminate $6 million to the budget because of drastic state budget cuts.
