District to Cut 22 Teaching Jobs

The move will save some $1.5 million annually.

The Bethlehem Area School Board on Monday night voted to cut 22 teaching positions in an attempt to balance the budget.

The cuts, which will save the district $1.5 million a year, were approved by a vote of 8 to 1, The Morning Call reported.

Superintendent Joseph Roy said at the meeting that there's a chance some of the positions can be restored once the state budget is passed in June, The Morning Call said.

If all of the cuts are implemented, the district will likely have larger class sizes, among other changes, Roy said at the meeting.
