School boards face decisions on budget cuts

December 14, 2009

Two area school boards will vote on or discuss proposals Monday night for big budget cuts. The Lawrence Township school board is expected to vote on the future of Craig Middle School. The board is considering a proposal that would close the school, send its sixth-graders back to elementary schools and the remaining seventh- and eighth-graders to the two remaining middle schools. The Franklin Township school board will learn about options for major cuts, including a 30-percent cut in bus routes and drivers, closing schools or eliminating teaching positions.
