Durham Public Schools will see about $20 million less in funding in the coming school year, according to a proposal presented Thursday night by Hank Hurd, interim superintendent.

Financing the district is the most challenging it has been since the system was founded in 1992, Hurd wrote in a message on the district website.

"It is impossible to put forth a proposal that everyone will like, but this represents thoughtful consideration among principals, teachers, parents and the community, along with DPS officials and board members," he wrote.

A meeting for public comment  is planned for May 6 at 6:30 p.m. The Board of Education will meet May 13 to vote on the budget.
