Oregon school officials make staff cuts

School officials in Oregon this week reduced their staff by 2 due to the lack of money in the budget.

The board cut 2 teachers that taught in the 4th and 1st grades. Superintendent Tom Mahoney said that the decision to eliminate the positions was financial for the district.

Mahoney also said that the district is expected to be down in revenue by around $495,000 during the next fiscal year due to the state budget from Governor Pat Quinn and the decline in local tax money.

School officials did approve a small increase in fees for the next school year. Registration for High School and Junior High students will go from $80 to $85. Elementary students will pay $65, a $5 hike.

Students in art classes at the High School will now pay $37 instead of $20. Middle School students will see an increase of $5 as the figure totals $15.
