Cuts school board members agree on so far

-A A +A

• Closing Bedford Primary School, moving those students to Bedford Elementary and the sixth graders from that school to Bedford Middle School. Potential savings: $530,000.

 
    • Maintaining the current staffing standards, eliminating 23 positions. Potential savings: $1.17 million.

    • Eliminate B-Team sports at the middle schools. Potential savings: $56,000.

    • Totally close down school buildings during Christmas break, meaning 12-month employees must use vacation days during a portion of that break. Potential savings: $93,000.

    • Change start times of elementary schools to 7:55 a.m. and middle and high schools to 8:55 a.m. (already approved). Savings: $380,000.
