UPLAND — The Upland Unified School District Board of Trustees on Tuesday recieved a two-and-a-half page list of possible cuts suggested by employees.

The suggestions were given to the district’s fiscal advisor Michele McClowry last week. She has been assigned to the district by San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools to help officials make $9 million in cuts to the 2013-14 fiscal year budget.

District officials will look through the list to determine what suggestions could be pursued, interim Superintendent Sherri Black said.

“Some of them are things that we may be able to look at. Some of them we may not be able to look at,” Black said. “There could be mandates and may not be something we’re able to do and then we will be able to provide some costs to some of these in case the board does want to look at any of them. ”

The suggestions were divided among several categories: attendance, facilities, maintenance, construction, operations, special education, district office/district-wide, classified services, high school/junior high school, elementary schools, transportation, negotiated suggestions and miscellaneous.

McClowry is accepting suggestions from employees as well as community members.
