Since then the school district cut about $750,000.On Wednesday night, the board approved a second attempt at a loan, this time for $2.9 million. It will have to be presented to voters at a public meeting and then voters will need to validate it through a referendum.Superintendent Gregory Potter said he hopes the vote will happen in January.
