Faribault Public Schools Superintendent Todd Sesker joins us on the KDHL AM Minnesota program 9:30 this morning.  Earlier this week the Faribault Public School Board held a work session to discuss necessary budget reductions.

Sesker told the board the over a million dollars in proposed cuts would get the district through this year but emphasized there will be a deficit next year.  He also said increases in funds from the state are probably not going to happen in the foreseeable future.

Sesker commented that they might have to, "go to the public for help."

We will discuss this along with Governor Tim Walz's announcement yesterday that schools will continue distance learning through the end of the current school year.

The Governor was asked if school would open in the fall during his daily press briefing Thursday also and said, "I don't know yet."  He added, "There's potential game changers in this both ways, if this thing gets worse or if we get some therapeutics."

Sesker indicated he might have a guest from his administration join us on the phone for today's program.  Nicole Yochum is the District Human Resources Manager.
