The Auburn Board of Education voted on Tuesday to eliminate three positions in the school district. Board members voted to cut one previously announced teaching assistant position as well as two teaching positions held by former Cayuga Centers staff.
Board of Education Vice President Kathleen Rhodes tells Finger Lakes News Radio the cuts were due in part to the sudden closure of the Cayuga Centers Auburn residential program and the budget deficit.
She adds the district is providing the best education for students for the bucks they get from the state.
Rhodes said at Tuesday’s meeting she is running to succeed Michael McCole as the school board president at the board reorganization meeting that will be held on Monday.
