During a Killeen Independent School District board workshop Tuesdayday, Megan Bradley, the district's financial officer, and Steve Cook, the executive director for personnel services, provided preliminary recommendations for the district's pending $5.5 million budget cut for the 2009-10 school year.

Some of their proposed recommendations included minimal pay increases for district personnel, staffing schools with fewer teachers and possibly cutting other positions such as classroom aides.

Board members and the district's interim superintendent, Dr. Robert Muller, won't make any formal decisions about the cuts until they can review and analyze the results of the ongoing campus surveys.

"(Campus personnel) will have a genuine input into the process," said Tal Anderson, the district's chief of staff, adding that the final campus surveys will be collected during the first week of January.

Afterward, Muller and board members will review the data and prepare an analysis of the results.
