Mar 27, 2013 — State budget numbers released late Tuesday show the General Brown Central School District in the Jefferson County town of Dexter will get a seven percent hike in state aid this year.
But on the same day, Superintendent Steve Vigliotti posted a notice on the District's website, listing 23 positions that could be cut by next fall.
General Brown is facing a $1.8 million budget gap.
Vigliotti says state aid has been cut more than $5 million over the past three years. He says the district has already cut its staff dramatically over the past decade. For next year, he's considering cutting elementary teachers, a special education teacher, and science teachers. Vigliotti also proposes eliminating programs to save money, including full-day kindergarten, some athletics, and theatre.
The District Budget Committee meets this evening, where more information will be presented.
