Binghamton City School District Budget Cuts Jobs & Programs
A $102 million budget approved by the Binghamton City School District board of education cuts dozens of jobs, intramural sports and some music classes.
32 faculty and staff jobs are on the chopping block.
Those cuts come in spite of allocation of more than $700,000 in aid from New York State.
The district, which just gained approval from voters for a multi-million dollar project to rebuild MacArthur school that had been destroyed in the 2011 flood, had been facing a deficit of $5.2 million.
A public hearing on the budget is scheduled for May 7th with public votes on school budgets across New York State coming on May 21st.
