Cache Schools boss: Despite budget cuts, great school year on tap

“It’s going to be a great school year.” That comment comes from Cache County School District Superintendent Steven Norton as he says the economic cloud hanging over the educational community has done nothing to dim the excitement of school opening for students, parents, teachers and administrators. Norton says that in spite of massive budget cuts, class sizes are not changing this year.”We all took a 4.2 percent cut in pay across the board, all administrators teachers and classified people,” Norton said. “There was nobody laid off in our district for budget purposes, we elected to go that route so we could keep our district the same this year.”Norton said he hopes the budget can look better by the time next year rolls around. He said that in spite of massive budget cuts, with no layoffs, class sizes will remain the same this year.
