Head Start is run by Action For A Better Community, Inc. It is a program that helps prepare children for school. It could be seeing a five percent cut. That is equivalent to $700,000. It would mean 75 parents would not be able to use their program. But the program would have to cut more than the amount of students they help.
"We have 1,435 students on any given day so there's a ratio between the staff and children so if we reduce children then we have to reduce staff," CEO James Norman said.
Norman also says that without instruction they are not sure how fast the cuts need to be made.
