    Boston Public Schools is set to release a report detailing ideas to save the school district millions of dollars, and school closings are still on the table.

    The ideas generated in the report to be released Tuesday morning were developed by an advisory committee looking at long-term planning in the district. 

    That committee, along with Superintendent Tommy Chang, will release what they're calling "10 Big Ideas to Unlock Resources in Boston Public Schools", then will meet in a panel form. 

    Those ideas look at cuts to save the district money, according to the Globe. Those cuts could mean school closures, cuts to bus service and looking at teacher pay and special needs services.

    The ideas could save the district $100 million. 

    District officials are quick to point out the ideas here are not necessarily recommendations, but rather a starting point for a community dialogue. 

    Boston Public School officials claim this district invests more per student than the rest of the country's largest school districts.
