Up to 13 staff positions could be cut from S-E schools

SHERBURNE – Up to 13 staff members could be let go from the Sherburne-Earlville Central Schools next year in an effort to meet a potential loss of $1.6 million in state aid.

The district stands to lose the most state aid of the nine school districts in Chenango County if Governor Andrew Cuomo’s executive budget plan makes it through the New York State Legislature. Cuomo proposes to cut $1.5 billion in school aid. Chenango County’s districts, in total, stand to lose nearly $7.3 million.

The proposed staff cuts include 10 teachers, one faculty and two support staff. Only one teacher has indicated plans to retire so far, though the state could later offer incentive packages that others may choose to take. Superintendent Gayle Hellert said the known retiree, a middle school teacher, will not be replaced.
