|Parish schools feel budget pinch|
Attrition will be the first step towards a balanced budget for the Ouachita Parish School System, according to Superintendent Bob Webber.
Webber said a partial hiring freeze would be the least painless way to start the process of balancing the books for the parish school system, which is anticipated to operate at a deficit in coming months.
"We don't plan to hire any permanent employees through this spring, as we move forward into the next fiscal year," Webber said. "There would be certain positions we'd have to fill, and we'll try to do that by hiring temporary or substitute-type employees for the time being at least. That's the initial plan."
The school board has created a budget committee made up of school personnel and a couple of school board members. That committee will continue meeting to look at other ways to reduce the deficit.
