Shetland's primary school pintas are safe. The education committee has rejected any raid on the milk supplies to save money as part of a Pounds 500,000 package of cuts.
There will be no renewed round of school closures, as councillors agreed to transfer almost Pounds 290,000 of the budget to their oil-based charitable trust. It will be asked to help with the cost of non-statutory items such as nursery classes.
The costs of travelling teachers, and staffing levels at the Anderson High in Lerwick will also be investigated.
