More than 50 citizens attended the Monday, Jan. 14, Red Oak Board of Education meeting about staffing and budget reductions.

Red Oak Superintendent Tom Messinger explained cuts were necessary in order to prevent the district from spending beyond its authorized spending limit, which is authorized by the Iowa Department of Education.
