WAYNESBORO, Pa. - New, significant expenditures for the Waynesboro Area School District in the coming year could include roof repairs and replacements at elementary schools, plagiarism and library management software, and three additional teaching positions.
The school board took an early look at proposed expenditures for the 2008-09 school year at its meeting Tuesday.
One of the proposed new teaching positions, for a first-grade teacher at Hooverville Elementary School, would come in part from the transfer of approximately nine current kindergarten students from crowded Summitview Elementary School.
"We in the past have transferred students from building to building to equalize class size," Assistant Superintendent Gloria Walker said.
Additional new teaching positions - if approved by the board - would be in fifth grade at Mowrey Elementary School and high school math, the latter of which would be necessitated by Franklin County (Pa.) Career and Technology Center students now taking math classes at their home school.
