Edison Local School District will cut teaching jobs amid a serious financial dilemma, officials decided during a special board meeting on Monday.
District administrators said they are trying to find a way to cut spending enough to overcome a $1.5 million deficit, and they said they will have to cut jobs.
Superintendent Dave Quattrochi said a resolution passed on Monday will help the district lessen its deficit, and — without specifying — he said there will be a number of teaching positions that won’t be filled next year.
Quattrochi said the decision was difficult but had to be done for the district to move forward.
“We had a staffing analysis done (and looked at) enrollment. It was not an easy decision, but we need to maintain our excellence and keep moving forward and build trust with the community,” Quattrochi said.
He said the board is hopeful a levy can be placed on the ballot again and will be passed so a similar situation can be avoided in the future.
