School district ponders new bond, reduced staff

Based on the talk at the last Bainbridge school board meeting, a new bond is a sure thing for the November ballot.

The price will be the same and so will the goals: replace Wilkes Elementary and renovate several other buildings.

Check out my story on the proposed bond here.

Also discussed at the meeting were the reduced staffing for the upcoming school year.

Certified staff (teachers, counselors, etc.) were 257 last year. Next year: 249.5

Classified staff (bus drivers, groundskeepers, food service workers) were 132 last year. Next year: 127.
