DESOTO (1080 KRLD) - The DeSoto ISD will hold a community town hall meeting this week to provide information about the district's new financial plan.

Officials are working to cut costs after discovering they were facing a significant shortfall.

School Board Members voted last week to close Northside Elementary for two years and send students who live near that campus to other schools. They are scheduled to vote next week on a proposal to eliminate more than 275 jobs.

The town hall meeting to discuss the district's plans will be held on Thursday, April 25th at 7:00pm at the Belt Line Conference Center in DeSoto.
