Daily Republic: School districts prepare for less money

FAIRFIELD — Automatic federal budget cuts could mean fewer jobs, fewer bus routes and cuts to student activities for Travis School District.

With more than a third of the students in the district coming from military families, the district relies heavily on federal funding for those 5,400 students. That equated to $2.8 million in what’s known as impact aid last year, according to a district report.

A 5.3 percent cut would equal a loss of $148,000 to the budget. That money would come from cutting jobs, activities and bus routes, according to the district.
