Ward added that .several state representaUx es and senators just now are beginning to realize that cuts in the education funding simply push responsibility for financing onto local school districts State government mandated expensive education programs during the reform steps of a few years ago. Ward said she fears that if funding is reduced, NBISD will be forced to pick up the tab for those piograms Hie local board of trustees Monday passed the district s largest budget in history and increased taxes to 97 cents per $ IOO valuation NBISD ad-mmistrators said state government already has shifted a much larger portion of funding onto the shoulders of local districts and Hie future is uncertain NBISD finance director I.onnit ('urns has said the district will survive tin* coming year even if state funding is reduced furthei, but beyond that point, the district could be forced to make serious .spending cuts “It s a difficult situation that the legislators face It is a big. big problem," Ward said today She added that “it remains to be seen” whetter the rally accomplished its goal of reminding legislators of the importance of education. Ward added that there are rumors of a second special session ut the legislature in Austin Such a session would leave the future of state funding for education in qucsUon, she added "It would keep everyone high and dry.” ;
