Niagara Gazette —
Also eliminated are 38 positions within the district, including an administrator, 11 teachers and 19 teacher aides.
Like Niagara-Wheatfield, Superintendent R. Christopher Roser said if this second budget fails to receive enough support, there could be devastating cuts to kindergarten – reduced to half-day – and interscholastic sports – including cuts to varsity and junior varsity programs – as the district attempts to close its contingency budget.
He said he’d need to find an additional $900,000 in a budget which is already being reduced to combat a loss of state aid income.
Voters will have the final say from noon to 8 p.m. in the district’s Community Resource Center, 4061 Creek Road.
