GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - As School District 51 officials look to trim the budget they're asking for your input on what stays and what can go.

District 51 launched an online survey asking the community to weigh in on balancing the budget. And paper copy of the survey is available in school buildings through out the District. The survey is open to anyone, is available in both English and Spanish and questions range from, should the District stop bussing in students to should the District move to a four day school week.

Christy McGee, spokeswoman for District 51, says it all helps Board members with the tough choices ahead. "Ultimately the Board has the final say for the budget, so we just want to present it to them and let them know again where the community value is, where do they feel comfortable," she says.

District 51 is looking to cut $8 to $12 million from the budget. Surveys must be completed by Feb. 3.
