The Warren School district isn't the only one in the Mid-Ohio Valley facing budget cuts.

Marietta says its looking at a million dollars in cuts if its school levy fails in May.

The district superintendent has outlined some programs that may have to go if the levy fails this spring and again in November when it would be re-proposed.

Increasing class sizes, cutting an elementary school, and making high school athletics pay-to-play are just some of his suggestions.

Also proposed is eliminating music, art, and phys-ed programs for elementary students and field trips for the whole district.

A finalized list of potential cuts will be ready closer to election day.
