DEKALB COUNTY – ( WAOK/AJC) – DeKalb county’s school board members will host the first in a series of public hearings Tuesday,  on a proposed budget,   that includes cutbacks,  to meet a nearly 73-million dollar budget shortfall.  A spokesperson for the school district says the plan does not include teacher layoffs,   but says there are other provisions on the table to meet the deficit.   The plan would include a property tax increase,   the hiring of fewer teachers,   raise classroom sizes,   and eliminate some 73 administrative positions at the central office.   The next meeting will be held next Wednesday,  May 30th,  with the budget expected to be finalized by June 11th.
