Arizona's public schools continue trying to climb back from deep cuts to their budgets over the past several years. Their planning for the next fiscal year has not been helped by delayed state budget talks at the Capitol.

Chuck Essigs, Director of Governmental Relations for the Arizona Association of School Business Officials, explained the challenges districts are facing.

Dr. David Peterson, Superintendent of the Scottsdale Unified School District, discussed the nearly $10 million in cuts his district is going to have to make.
