Euclid Schools Making Significant Cuts

Euclid - The Euclid Board of Education has announced drastic cuts after a special meeting called Monday night.

Board president Donna Sudar has confirmed voters' failure to renew an emergency levy in 2018 left the district short $5.6 million dollars that it used in the operating budget.

The cuts will be felt at all schools in many forms. Those will included:

  • Transportation will be reduced to a state minimum (only students one through eight who live more than two miles from school will receive transportation).
  • All preschool and kindergarten students will continue to receive transportation.
  • A total of 21 positions will be cut, including teaching positions in music and art, technology and gym.
  • Tennis, golf and cheerleading will be cut.
  • Athletic programs in eighth-grade will be limited to one team for each sport.
  • Drill Team, Student Council, School Newspaper and a long list of after school programs will be cut.

"It was honestly one of the hardest things I've had to do as a member of this board," says Sudar, who also remains hopeful for a possible re-tread of a new levy in 2019. "Were out of options for now, but November is on the table."

The district has also implemented a pay freeze for the 2019-2020 school year.
