Five teaching positions have been cut at Greensburg schools in an effort to save money.

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.

South Decatur Elementary School has introduced a new fundraising program called My School Color Run. The My School Color Run program aims to go beyond traditional fundraising. Rather than sell goods, the program aims to engage the entire student body in a fitness initiative that aims to instill a life-long healthy way of living. On Sept. 3, at 9 a.m., the students, staff, and community of South Decatur Elementary School will walk, jog, and run their way toward a healthier life while raising funds for the PTO’s Playground Revitalization Project. The color run will be held at South Decatur Jr-Sr High School, and will be open to the public. This is an untimed fun run.

Participants will be treated to refreshments, music, and fun following the run. Interested participants of all ages can register by visiting www.SouthDecaturMSCR.eventbrite.com, or by completing a paper registration form prior to the event. Registration is $25 for adults 13 and older, and $20 for kids 12 and under. A family of five gets a discount at $20 per person. Pre-registration is[...]
