The Portland Public School board approved a budget Monday night that the district says fills a $27.5 million budget gap.

The budget includes $456 million in general funds but including fundraising and grants, the total funds are $678 million, the district said in a news release.

The plan saves 110 jobs with help promised from the City of Portland. The city council is due to vote on their contribution later this month.

After contributions from several sources, the district's Outdoor School will remain funded, but two campuses will close as planned.

The district will close the Harriet Tubman Young Women's Leadership Academy and move Humboldt students to the Boise-Eliot campus for the 2012-13 school year.
