RENO — Washoe County Superintendent Heath Morrison will announce proposed recommendations for how to fill the district’s $40 million budget shortfall for the upcoming 2012-13 school year at 10 a.m. today at the school district’s main office, 425 E. Ninth St. in Reno.

Morrison will present information about anticipated budget shortfalls and discuss efforts to minimize impacts on students. He also will talk about the state’s application for a waiver of the No Child Left Behind Act and will announce how he will allocate $10,000 in scholarship funds received as a result of being named the National Superintendent of the Year by the American Association of School Administrators.

Morrison was bestowed with the title at the opening ceremonies of this year’s AASA national conference on Feb. 16 in Houston, Texas. As the honoree, Morrison is entitled to present a $10,000 college scholarship to a student at the high school from which he graduated or to a student from a high school in the Washoe County School District.
