The Greensburg Community School Board agreed to cut five teaching positions as the corporation searches for ways to bring costs in line with revenues.
The five contracts consist of a health teacher and two English teachers at the junior high school, a science teacher at the high school and a special education teacher at the elementary school, according to the Greensburg Daily News.
The job cuts will save the school corporation about $320,000 per year. School officials are looking to cut expenditures by an additional $180,000.
Superintendent Tom Hunter told the Greensburg Daily News that administrators are working to lessen the impact of a smaller teaching staff on students.
