CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- The Chambersburg Area School Board took steps this week to make significant personnel changes to address an anticipated budget deficit that at one time topped $3 million.
The board approved a tentative budget that would leave 38 positions open and eliminate one position.
District spokeswoman Sylvia Rockwood credited a retirement incentive program with helping administrators receive retirement notices earlier than usual. They also received more notices than in an average year, she said.
The eliminated position, an alternative education counselor in the secondary schools, will result in one employee being laid off. He has been notified, Rockwood said.
For the 38 other positions, some will be left open and existing employees will be moved into others, leaving their original positions unfilled, she said.
