School board will discuss cuts tonight

CLINTON — The Clinton School Board will meet in two sessions tonight, first a work session and then a special board meeting, to ultimately work toward reducing expenses in the fiscal year 2014 budget.

The board will meet at 5:30 p.m. at Clinton High School for planning and reduction concerning that budget and then will follow that with the special board meeting to address reductions and an early retirement waiver for an employee.

According to the agenda, the board could move to approve a designated list of reductions that would be determined at the work session.

The board has been considering a number of positions to cut to make up for a more than $850,000 funding loss for next school year caused by the district’s reduced enrollment.

Under a proposal that board members unanimously voted down two weeks ago, the district would have reduced four seventh- and eighth-grade positions, one sixth-grade position, six kindergarten through fifth-grade positions, one high school world language position, one fifth through 12th grade instrumental music position, one preschool position, one high school auto trades position and half of a high school business position.

The reduction of elementary school teachers would have affected third through fifth grades, with class size increasing to 29 students. At the middle school level, class sizes at both campuses would be equal at 28-33 students per class.

The board at that time also voted down a separate resolution to terminate the associate principal at Washington Middle School.

This also is expected to be addressed again by board members.
