Second largest district in Illinois faces $44 million deficit

From The Chicago Tribune: Elgin, Ill.,-based School District U-46 is looking at potential cuts of nearly 1,100 jobs — 732 of them teaching positions — and program reductions including middle school football and art and music lessons for kindergartners. Facing a $44 million budget gap, officials in U-46, the state's second-largest school system, say they have little choice but to prepare for the cuts, given dwindling property tax revenues and the prospect of losing millions in state money.
