URBANA SCHOOLS TO CLOSE URBANA LOCAL AS PART OF BUDGET CUTS
(FROM NEWS SUN) Urbana school board members approved $1 million in cuts last week, including a plan to close Local Intermediate school, to narrow a projected budget deficit.
If voters reject a renewal levy on the ballot in May, board members already have decided millions more in cuts are on the way.
The district had considered eliminating a handful of teaching positions, but those cuts may not be necessary due to recent retirements, said Charles Thiel, superintendent for the district.
Closing Local Intermediate will mean moving that school’s kindergarten and first-grade classes to North Elementary, moving second- and third-grade classes to South Elementary and moving fourth- and fifth-grade classes to East Elementary. Sixth-grade students will be moved to the junior high school.
District officials have said closing Local Intermediate could save the district as much as $200,000 per year. The money saved by not filling several teaching positions is estimated at about $308,000.
