ZEPHYR COVE, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- George Whittell High School in Zephyr Cove could be seeing even more academic cuts due to its declining enrollment.

Wednesday night, the South Shore community spoke out against the proposed cuts at the Douglas County School District meeting. Community members and parents say the cuts are unjust and discriminatory to the students. They say the school's already lost a lot of its technology, the Vice Principal, and there's the potential of losing music classes.

Concerned parent, Kelly Gardner, says she hopes this will not make parents move their kids to other schools.

"It's a great school, number two school in the state right now according to US News and World Report. We want more people to bring their kids there, but we want to give them a reason to come and we want to make it everything we promised it can be."

Gardner also adds she's confident School District officials will come up with a solution that doesn't involve more cuts.
