Carlton considers options to reduce deficit

The reality of a significant budget deficit for the current school year appears to be changing Carlton School Board attitudes about working with the Wrenshall School District, as evidenced by discussions held during the committee of the whole meeting Thursday, April 4.

How far board members might be willing to go still varies wildly, with Tim Hagenah expressing some willingness to discuss combining football teams with nearby Wrenshall — a change from previous discussions — while Jennifer Chmielewski brought up the idea of sharing a superintendent with the neighboring school district.
