FAIRBORN, Ohio (WDTN) - Fairborn schools are cutting 45 positions in an effort to save the district more than $1.5 million.
The district was placed on fiscal caution in January. It had two months to put a financial plan in place.
The cuts will include 22 teaching positions, 20 aides, 2 assistant principals and an elementary secretary position.
The school board still has to vote on the staffing reductions at its April 11 meeting.
Parents are now wondering what's next for the district.
"I'm concerned about trying to find a good school district. I feel for the teaching staff and what they are trying to work with," said one parent.
In addition to the cuts, the district is putting an 11.7 mill emergency operating levy on the May 7 ballot.
Those 45 positions will be eliminated regardless of the May levy outcome.
