"I get a lot of kids that come in and say they have a headache, only to dig a little bit deeper and find it's because they have horrible vision," Reed explained. "I will refer them to Eye Care for Kids, who has free eyeglasses. Who's going to do that if I'm not there?"
HISD says Scarborough is expected to share a nurse with another campus. It's the kind of belt tightening students and parents can expect next year.
Just this month, the HISD school board approved to not renew the contracts of 238 teachers. Five hundred teachers have already decided to leave voluntarily.
But that's not enough to balance the budget. The board is expected to approve cuts to 1,200 school-based employees such as teachers, librarians and nurses, as well as cut 282 non-classroom employees, such as administrative positions.
There is also another area where cuts are expected.
"Summer school will be a big cut also," said HISD Board President Paula Harris. "If we have summer school this year, it will be only for kids who have been retained."
HISD's board president says they will discuss these layoffs Thursday at a budget workshop.
