The Culver School Board is looking for way to bridge a $500,000 deficit during the next school year. Superintendent Brad Schuldt says the shortfall is a result of cuts in state funding. He said that might be offset by retirements or people leaving for other reasons. The school board passed a resolution this week to set the target expenditure at $500,000. They also passed a resolution stating they will not offer retirement incentives this year. Of the corporation’s 78 teachers, Schuldt says between 10 and 15 are eligible for retirement. If additional reductions in force are necessary, state law requires the school corporation to notify targeted teachers between May 1 and July 1.
