The board made the cuts at a special meeting Tuesday to account for a multi-million dollar shortfall. The cuts will consolidate and eliminate positions.

School Superintendent David Roach says that if the board hadn’t approved the changes, the state would have possibly made the cuts.

The school system hopes to have the budget approved by the State Board of Education in May.
