FAIRFIELD — The Fairfield-Suisun School District board unanimously approved the district’s 2012-13 budget Thursday, putting to bed a budget that includes closing a school and eliminating home-to-school transportation.
The board voted 7-0. By law, the board must pass the budget before June 30, which is Saturday.
Nearly all the work was completed prior to Thursday. The board in February began with public meetings to close a $6.5 million deficit. The cuts include closing Sullivan Middle School.
Givebacks by school district unions saved the district $1.9 million, savings programs such as high school sports and activities, employee positions and funding for adult education, independent study and for classroom materials.
