The Mississippi Department of Education is telling school districts how much money they'll lose because of budget cuts due to decreased revenues.
Gov. Haley Barbour announced last week that because of weak state tax collections, he was cutting the overall $6 billion budget by 2.9 percent.
The cuts to education, however, are 5 percent because education was funded at record levels and Barbour said some other agencies were already receiving less money this year than last.
Some examples of cuts:
-- DeSoto County schools are losing $6 million from the original $130.5 million allocation.
-- Vicksburg-Warren schools are losing $1.7 million from $37.8 million.
-- Gulfport schools are losing $1.1 million from $23.2 million.
-- Brookhaven schools are losing $596,079 from $12.9 million.
