Florida Cut Backs

The Florida School for the Deaf and Blind is being told by the state to cut $1.7 million from its $46 million budget. The St. Augustine school educates nearly 900 students, many of whom live in campus. Administrators are telling teachers to stop all spending unless absolutely necessary while they determine where to cut back. They say one of the first things to go will be field trips.
