School Board Budget as Example of Local Budget Choices

We are facing a one time shortfall of $100 million in my school system (we have a $2.5 billion budget).  If you are looking for a good assignment on local government, the video above does a great job of explaining how we get our funding and here are the two lists of budget cuts for $50 and %75 million.  We have elected school boards, but they do not have taxing authority and must get all funding from our Board of Supervisors.
