30 jobs could be cut in Winton Woods School District

FOREST PARK, OH (FOX19) - The superintendent of Winton Woods Schools is proposing the elimination of 30 positions due to budget cuts.

Superintendent Dr. Camille Nasbe will present for approval over $1.5 million in budget cuts for the 2012-13 school year at the March 26 Board of Education meeting. As part of the budget cuts, 30 positions will be eliminated, including classroom teachers, school support positions, and clerical and security workers. In addition, custodial and payroll services will be outsourced, and high school bussing will be eliminated.

"We do not want to approach our communities for a levy in 2012," said Nasbe. "Budget cuts are necessary due to the reduction of state funding, increases in health care costs and the elimination of federal funding for EdJobs."

The meeting will take place at 7:00 p.m. March 26 in the Board offices at 1215 W. Kemper Road in Forest Park.

"These savings are in addition to the $2.6 million reduction in the 2011-2012 budget," said Nasbe.

That budget eliminated 38 positions, froze wages through 2013-2014, and implemented various cost-savings measures.
