The San Luis Coastal Unified School District is in the process of cutting $8.5 million from its budget.
The cuts began last year, totaling 4-point-3 million.
Tuesday night, the school board discussed how it will cut the remaining $4.2 million this year.
One of the ways the superintendent recommends saving money is by laying off 40 positions within the school district.
They also proposed to end high school bus service.
"The very most important thing we must do is ensure high quality instruction in all of our classrooms. Our kids deserve nothing less than that," said Superintendent Eric Prater.
The school board will meet again on April 23rd to take action on the superintendent's recommendations.
