Waynesboro schools might be reducing the number of teachers to balance the budget next year.
Tuesday night, Superintendent Jeffrey Cassell presented the school board with a nearly $32 million proposed budget for next year. It includes more than a half-million dollars in rising Virginia Retirement System costs and $364,000 for additional health insurance costs.
The school should get an extra $335,000 from the state, but this still puts them $763,000 over budget.
Cassell says a possible solution is reducing 10 full-time and five part-time positions, achieved through attrition.
