The Flint School Board takes up a Deficit Elimination Plan Tuesday night.
The district is wrestling with a nearly $16 million deficit.
The Flint school district has made deep budget cuts, including laying off teachers and closing schools in recent years.
More cuts are likely if the district follows the plan to eliminate its deficit by June, 2016.
Larry Watkins is Flint’s interim School Superintendent. He insists the deficit elimination plan will not get in the way of the school district’s core mission.
