Greene County Schools to Ask Board for Level Funding
More than 22 people who work for Greene County Public Schools could soon be out of a job. At Wednesday's meeting, the Greene County School Board voted to ask the Board of Supervisors for the same amount of money it got last year, with no hope of getting more.
The chairman of the school board says even if granted level funding, the school district will have to eliminate more than 22 positions. If the level funding is not granted, the impact could be even greater.
Five of the 22 positions would be teachers, 13 would be teaching assistants and the rest would be other staff, like secretaries and custodians.
The school district would also be unable to hire a nursing coordinator, a position that is currently vacant and would remain that way. A special services coordinator could also be eliminated.
The Greene County School Board says will present its official request for the money to the Board of Supervisors on March 6.
