Fewer funds translates to fewer teacher positions

GLASGOW — Barren County Schools Superintendent Bo Matthews announced that there will be a decrease in nine teacher allocations.

Matthews said during the school board session Thursday the nine less teacher positions will save the school district an estimated $360,000. Other actions the board performed at the meeting and in next month’s board meeting are estimated to save around $1 million.

Due to budget shortfalls from government sequestration and other unexpected expenses, the school district is likely to face a $900,000 shortfall in the 2013-14 budget.

“This decision will impact all staff in the district certified and classified,” Matthews said. “Salaries make up the lion’s share of the budget.”
