From this year's budget cuts, Montgomery said other than Fifth Street Elementary losing its choral teacher, the district has not had to let go of any more teachers or programs in the schools. He said one of the main things that was saved was the arts program, which he is excited about, and encouraged partners to continue to support arts in the schools.
