The recent announced shut down of Cayuga Centers’ residential treatment program in Auburn put the future of 19 Auburn school district teachers teaching at the center in limbo.
School Board President Michael McCole said on Tuesday’s Finger Lakes Morning News the teachers union and the district worked together to come up with a solution. The displaced Cayuga Centers teachers would take over long-term substitute positions.
Resolving the issue has lessened the impact on the district’s looming $4 Million dollar budget deficit. McCole said budget planning is in limbo until state lawmakers reach a budget deal, which under state law has to be done by April 1.
