The New Milford Board of Education has approved more than $750,000 in reductions because of the budget approved by voters, presented with cuts from the Board of Finance and Town Council.
The cuts include more teaching positions.
Seven of the eight staff cuts at Sarah Noble Intermediate School are of teachers who are retiring, with the 8th position being a physical education teacher. The Newstimes reports that an art teacher, a music teacher, a second-grade teacher, a third-grade teacher, two fourth-grade teachers and one fifth-grade teacher will not be replaced.
School officials say Sarah Noble will continue to see a decline while elementary school enrollment has just leveled off.
