The Brainerd School Board certified the results of last week's referendum election at Tuesday's meeting. The board will meet on Wednesday to hear recommendations from Superintendent Jerry Walseth for buget reductions. Levy referenda in Brainerd, Crosby-Ironton and Wadena-Deer Creek were defeated last Tuesday. Administrators have said budget cuts and teacher lay-offs could be in the future. Most school administrators have said that state funding remains inadequate and that's why they're short of money. Roseville lawmaker Mindy Greiling is the chairperson of the House Education Finance Committee and on a task force that's taking a look at the state education formula. Greiling said the original plan was to have a report and recommendations ready in January but she doubts if the committee will be ready by then. She said education funding will probably be a topic of conversation during next year's legislative session.
