Sycamore Dist. 427 considers eliminating 56 positions


A public hearing at the next Sycamore School Board meeting will deal with the upcoming budget, and the district’s plans to reduce its deficit…partly through reductions in staff.

The plan submitted to the District 427 Board on Tuesday night calls for the elimination of up to 56 positions within the district; the board is trying to close the gap on its deficit, which right now stands at $2.3 million dollars.

District Superintendent Kathy Countryman says they’ve made every possible cut to other areas, and aren’t resorting to staff reductions lightly.

The hearing will be held on February 23rd at 7 o’clock, at Sycamore Middle School.
