SHERMAN, Tex -- Rollback elections were held in a number of school districts across the state, and one school district is trying to see where it can cut back after its rollback proposal failed. Sherman ISD administrators say they'll have to make about $3 million in cuts to the 2009 budget.

But school officials say that they are doing whatever they can do to make sure the cuts won't be too drastic.

Back in October, rollback elections were held for most school districts in Grayson County, many of them failed. Now, those districts are having to cut back on budgets as well, as administrators in Sherman are working to soften the blow to their district.

"We are going to take moves to balance that budget in a way that will have a minimum impact on the academic and extra curricular activities for the children adn we also want to do minimum harm to teachers and staff in our district," said John Hendricks, President of the Sherman School Board.

Hendricks says whatever changes they decide to make will take effect in the 2009 school year.
