Devin Maez, left, and Cameron Liddell read in Renee Sebestyen’s fifth-grade class at Bayfield Elementary School. Bayfield School District is considering cutting departmental and classroom supplies by 10 percent to save $40,000. Bayfield Elementary School Principal Diane Gardner said school administrators try to keep those cuts away from everyday classroom supplies by putting off longer-term maintenance. Devin is the son of Isaiah and Brooke Baker, and Cameron is the son of Anthony Liddell and Amy Williams-Liddell.

The district also will begin charging athletic participation fees and is discussing posing a mill-levy increase to voters in the fall to help the district improve in the future.
