The school board in District 200 is scheduled to consider nearly $7 million in budget cuts at its meeting Wednesday night. The bulk of the cuts are expected to be teacher layoffs.

District 200 covers Wheaton, Warrenville and portions of Carol Stream, Winfield and West Chicago.

Staff reductions will be made at the elementary, middle and high school levels. The proposed budget also includes cuts for some athletic teams and elimination of some middle-school sports.
