(Richmond, IN)--A decrease in funding has become a major concern for administrators and board members of Richmond Community Schools.  Wednesday night, CFO Karen Scalf told the board that tax caps have led to a 30% reduction in the funds the school system would normally get from property taxes.  Declining enrollment is also an issue.  Schools get state money on a per-pupil basis, and RCS lost another 40 students this school year.  Superintendent Todd Terrill did not discuss specific potential cuts and said that the top priority would be keeping cuts from affecting students.
