Franklin Township schools OK big cuts

November 23, 2010

Franklin Township Schools Corp. voted 4-1 Monday night to cut $10 million from its budget if a referendum doesn’t pass in May. The cuts include eliminating transportation to all students except those with special needs, chopping 48 teaching jobs, closing three schools and converting a middle school into a large elementary school. Superintendent Walter Bourke agreed to a $10,000 pay cut.
