Play the Budget Cutting Game!

Ok fans, what was inevitable has finally hit the Ukiah Unified School District. Due to rising costs (transportation and Special Education are killers), declining enrollment, and health care, the District needs to find a way to cut nearly 1.5 million dollars for the current fiscal year.
Ouch?
How about the possibility of cutting even more next year. Like that?
Neither do I.

In fact, much of the conversation around the table lately is regarding ideas that the District can make to cut the budget, become more efficient to prevent future cuts, and to still get teachers an increase in salary to match the high (and ever increasing) cost of living in Ukiah.

I need your ideas. Start simple and then get more creative.
