The West Las Vegas school district has received the news about how much it will have to cut from its budget.
West Business Manager Dawn Biagianti said the state has informed the district that it must trim 4 percent, or $527,491, from its operating budget.
“This is probably the biggest cut I’ve ever had to deal with. This really hurts, and I know it’s very difficult. Until we had the final information from the Public Education Department, we weren’t sure exactly what the dollar amount would be,” Biagianti said at a recent board meeting.
