Lodi Unified School District trustees approved the district's $211 million financial plan for the 2011-12 school year on Tuesday. It is the third consecutive budget year the district has faced unprecedented program and personnel cuts as well as ongoing swelling class sizes.
"It looks like a budget everybody can live with. Everyone worked together on it," board president George Neely said following the meeting. "It was kind of a leap of faith since we don't have a state budget yet."
