Teacher cuts proposed in Londonderry
During a presentation of next year's proposed district budget during Tuesday's school board meeting, Superintendent Nathan Greenberg said the elimination of six certified teaching positions would save the district $413,528 in fiscal year 2015.
Greenberg said that the reductions are in keeping with the recent trends. Since 2006, the district has removed an average of one position for every 17-student drop in enrollment, as well as reducing the number of non-certified positions, such as teacher assistants and clerical staff.
According to Greenberg, Londonderry stands to lose $583,884 in state adequacy aid next year, bringing the total reduction in aid to $2.4 million since last year alone.
However, those revenues are subject to approval of a pending memorandum between the Londonderry and Hooksett districts. A small number of Hooksett students began attending Londonderry High School last fall. School officials said the arrangement has been successful so far.
The tax rate impact of the general fund budget, as proposed now, is 13 cents.
The warrant articles include a maintenance trust fund for $500,000 and two negotiated agreements (custodial and support staff) for $110,309 and $56,570 respectively.
