Budget problems are behind big changes for parents and teachers in Wayne Township
The school district is receiving less revenue from property taxes and must now fill an almost $12 million budget deficit.
The school is eliminating 60 positions but said they are doing their best to avoid layoffs through retirements, attrition and moving positions around.
They are also reducing 20 bus routes and that will impact many families.
“That will change some of our start and finish times, however, our elementaries will not be on the same schedule anymore, by the same token, we’ll have four elementaries that will have an additional 30 minutes of instructional time each day,” said Dr. Jeff Butts, Superintendent
The district said they also plan to cut some programs.
