Mansfield Schools face a $4.5 million deficit when fiscal year 2014 ends June 30. So, drastic action must be taken to keep the district financially afloat.

The school board met for a five-minute special session Friday morning to take two actions. First, to ask the state auditor to place the district in fiscal emergency. If approved, this would allow the district to borrow money to get through the fiscal year.

The board also is asking the teaching and non-teaching unions to re-open contract negotiations before their respective agreements expire at the ends of June and July.

Supt. Brian Garverick said the next step is to start making spending cuts, which could affect all aspects of Mansfield Schools, including staffing reductions and building closings.

Garverick said the primary cause of Mansfield Schools' financial problems is delinquent property tax payments. He said those revenues are coming in significantly below expectations.
