Cheltenham School District implements budget taskforce

    Cheltenham School District is taking an active approach to its $5 million budget deficit. A taskforce has been implemented to discuss and plan cuts to save $3 million.

    A vote will take place Feb. 8 for the preliminary budget, which includes $2 million in staff cuts. The following week, the taskforce will convene.

    The Glenside News Globe Times Chronicle reports the taskforce will meet for the first time Feb. 15 where participants will be broken down into focus groups based on their interests. The ultimate goal is transparency.
