MICHIGAN CITY – Michigan City schools are cutting more than 100 jobs to help ease a $16 million budget deficit.
The school district says most of those jobs are classroom assistants, secretarial and maintenance positions.
7 teachers and some administration positions will also be cut.
School Board member William Greene says it wouldn't surprise him if they had to close a school next year.
Another board member says funding problems started with the countywide property tax reassessment in 2006. The district wasn't receiving tax money, so they had to borrow money.
