BENTON HARBOR - The Benton Harbor Area Schools board voted Tuesday to cut almost $6 million from the district's future budgets in the hope of qualifying soon for a $4 million loan from the State Emergency Loan Fund.

Cuts the board approved in a deficit elimination plan for the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 school years include $1.4 million for substitute teachers, $1.3 million for 10 fewer teachers and $1 million in benefits reductions required by the state.
