District administrators in Madison said they'll start trying to sort it all out Wednesday, but they said it hurts even more because in Madison the cuts are cumulative.
Madison Metropolitan School Superintendent Dan Nerad said the district has been reducing programs for the last 15 years.
"To address that budget deficit, we can't create an education deficit. We have significant challenges we're facing and we have to face those challenges in a way that ensures better outcomes for kids," Nerad said.
Nerad said he's "very worried" about what comes next.
