MPS to unveil 2012-13 budget; many cuts likely

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Apr 26, 2012

MILWAUKEE - This week, the Milwaukee Public Schools was expected to unveil its budget plan for the 2012-13 school year.

The plan was likely to include a lot of cuts, something districts like Kenosha are dealing with - particularly in the area of job cuts.

The public was expected to find out how many job cuts would be expected in MPS after teachers voted down a proposal to give all but a .5 percent raise back to the district.

A MPS meeting has been scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Thursday.  An MPS spokeswoman says that the budget will not be discussed at the meeting.
