Portland Superintendent Carole Smith will announce her recommended budget cuts at the school board meeting Monday evening. Twenty-three administrative employees have already been laid off from Portland Public Schools. That made a dent in the district’s $27 million budget gap, but there’s still a lot of belt-tightening to come. The public will get a chance to weigh in before the board approves the budget on May 14.
