JAMESTOWN – Two teaching positions have been cut in the latest round of budget reductions in the Southwestern Central School District.
According to an article in today’s Jamestown Post-Journal, the district held a special Board of Education meeting Tuesday night to review the 2012-13 budget. By the end of the meeting, the board had voted to eliminate a full-time high school science teacher and a full-time elementary school music teacher.
According to Superintendent Daniel George, the district began the meeting at a budget of $25.84 million, which is less than half a percent increase over the current year’s budget.
The next Board of Education meeting for Southwestern Central School District will be held on March 27.
