Board reinstates 4 of 5 programs
Previous class cuts unnecessary.
Four of the five programs reduced last month by the Brady school board were reinstated to their previous levels Monday night, nullifying reduction in force notices.
Music, art, physical education, industrial technology and family and consumer science programs had been cut back by one or two courses each in anticipation of a significant drop in school aid funds.
Legislation determining the state aid to schools package was passed and signed by the governor in late April.
Brady superintendent Bill Porter told the school board during its regular monthly meeting that federal funds to help retain teachers will cover the cost of reinstating the programs.
Music, art, P.E. and family and consumer science instructors will teach the same number of classes during the 2011-12 school year that they did this year.
Industrial technology will be reduced from seven periods to six, a recommendation that was made last year prior to budget concerns.
