CALIPATRIA — The Calipatria Unified School District might have to make budget cuts to keep the district from going bankrupt in the near future, a district spokeswoman said.

Betty Raceles, administrative assistant from the Calipatria school district said during a school board meeting Monday board members might hear recommendations on budget cuts affecting programs and employees.

Raceles said the decline of enrollment in the past couple years caused the school district to have deficit spending.

Also during the meeting:

· Board members will discuss the three board terms set to expire in December. The seats are currently held by board members Michael Aleksick, Patty Dockstader and Davis Beauchamp.

· Board members will discuss possibly relocating the community education program in Calipatria operated by the Imperial County Office of Education.


Raceles said the county program had been working out of an empty classroom at Calipatria High school. The classroom will be needed during the coming school year.

Board members will hear possible sites for the program.

The meeting will start at 7:30 p.m. at the Christine Clay Memorial Library, 601 W. Main St.
