Cuts in Millcreek School District

Local News

A budget deficit will apparently mean the end of two programs in the Millcreek School District.

The school board voted to eliminate the district’s Montessori program and alternative education programs.

According to board member Mike Kobylka, the board was told the moves will save more than $1 million. Kobylka says two clerical jobs and one administrative position are being cut but and moved elsewhere.

Board president John Diplacido said about 85 kids will be affected.

The board is also asking the administration for a tax increase, but that will not be finalized until a Thursday vote.
