HUBER HEIGHTS, Ohio (WDTN) - Concerned residents packed the Huber Heights School Board meeting Thursday evening.
They wanted to hear about potential cuts including a resource officer.
School leaders say the cuts are necessary after a failed November levy.
Residents say cutting teachers is one thing, but in light of the recent tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, some question cutting a security officer.
The changes proposed also include laying off teachers and support staff, cutting field trips, increasing class sizes and changing the length of the school day.
