The Jamestown Public School Board came to a consensus to cut at least $150,000 from the 2012-2013 school year budget at Monday’s meeting.
The district faces estimated deficit spending of $945,125 for the next school year. Dropping between $150,000 and $200,000 from the deficit is the first step toward the long process of having a balanced budget.
The enrollment numbers are in for Jamestown Public Schools, and those numbers are stable.
The district total as of this third Friday of the year was 2,148 students, down one student from last year with the biggest area of growth in the elementary schools — more specifically, kindergarten.

BISMARCK — The oil boom has Williston’s schools bursting with students, the district’s superintendent and local lawmakers said Monday as they made a rare plea for state help in building more classroom space.
The North Dakota House Education Committee reviewed legislation that asks for $14 million in state money to help pay for a $70 million construction and renovation project. It does not mention Williston directly, but is worded to apply only to the Williston school district.
