NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WIVB)

The Niagara Falls School District is facing some bleak scenarios according to the Buffalo News that include cutting as many as 33 jobs  to balance the budget .

Superintendent Cynthia Bianco unveiled several plans at a Thursday night meeting to meet the budget target of about $125 million.

The administration is predicting personnel cuts, between 10 and 15 teachers, an administrator and other staffers.

The district is factoring in an estimated increase of $200,000 in aid from the state.  Other media, including the Niagara-Gazette, report that the school district is facing a $7 million budget gap.

Financial concerns could even be worse if plans for a local charter school are improved.
