Mitchell School Board Approves Decrease In Opt-Out

The Mitchell School Board on Monday night approved a decrease in the district’s opt-out dollars for 2014.  The opt-out was passed in 2002 for up to 700,000 dollars per year.  The amount in 2014 will be 200,000 dollars.  Opt-out dollars are used to support existing programs and to avoid cuts.  Mitchell Schools Superintendent Joe Graves says the two reasons the decrease is possible are an increase in enrollment and cost reduction in the district.
