Dr. Winter Lewis lives in Sisters and has two students who go to school there.
He was at Wednesday night's meeting and is still listening.
"My immediate response is really neutral. Obviously I'm raising kids in the district and know the district's wonderful reputation and knowing the challenges of state funding of K-12 shcools. This is just another example of the hard decisions that have to be made."
No decisions will be made until May on what to do. The school board will consider going to a four day school week, or laying off more staff or cutting programs.
The school district has lost 200 students since 2006, but in recent years, enrollment has stabilized.
