Bethel schools could be forced to cut 119 positions due to state budget stalemate

Bethel schools stand to take a 14-percent hit to their budget because the General Assembly has failed to approve a tax and spending plan for the next two years, and the town has already put a budget in place.  The Governor's latest proposal is to make a $6.3 million cut to Bethel's Education Cost Sharing grant.  Bethel School officials say that would mean up to 119 positions lost ranging from administrators, custodians, and secretaries to teachers, paraeducators and nurses. Non-mandated curricular and extracurricular programs could be on the chopping block.
