The Rowan-Salisbury School System must return more than $800,000 to the state because of budget cuts.

State officials decided earlier this week to make school systems and charter schools return money based on enrollment figures.

Rowan-Salisbury schools must give back $817,637.

School leaders are figuring out where to make cuts in the budget, Rowan-Salisbury schools Superintendent Dr. Judy Grissom said.

The system has a Dec. 19 deadline to the state about what will be cut, she said.

“I don’t foresee any layoffs,” Grissom said. “We will do everything we can for the classroom to not be affected.” The board of education will likely talk about the budget reversions at its meeting Monday, Grissom said.

She said she does not expect a board vote about the matter until next month.

Other schools must return the following amounts:

Kannapolis City Schools: $201,593
Cabarrus County Schools: $1,120,929
Mooresville City Schools: $221,415
Iredell-Statesville Schools: $859,400
Gray Stone Day School: $10,951
