Last week, taxpayers, parents, and teachers were told by the El Paso Independent School District Board of Managers that there was an 11 million dollar budget deficit. People were understandably upset because questions about teacher’s jobs, and a renovation of Superintendent Juan Cabrera’s office came up, and the Board of Managers didn’t really answer any of them. This week, the Board says the budget deficit is actually much worse than taxpayers, and district officials, first thought. EPISD is staring into a 17 million dollar hole in their budget. The question about the Superintendent's office came up again, and the answer from the Board's president has a lot of people even more upset than they were before.
