...Parent Susan Katz Miller said, "The board really needs to get in there an scrutinize every line of cut that is going to be made and make sure that they're representing what the community is asking them to do."
...Miller said, "I believe there are things in the budget that can be cut that aren't programs, that aren't going to affect kids directly."
In addition to parents, students will also voice their concerns and make their case to the board of education for programs they hope can be saved.
"Students tend to get a lot of respect when they go and testify. It's definitely an effective technique for getting the board's attention," stated Miller.
