WASHINGTON — Temporary and part-time positions in Charles County Public Schools will be eliminated as part of the school board’s move to reduce the budget by $5.5 million.
Eliminating the positions, which are mostly instructional assistants and support staff, will save $1 million for the 26,400-student school system.
Additionally, the school board voted to reduce the number of substitute teachers and to eliminate dedicated bus routes for parochial school children, according to a news release.
By not providing bus transportation to the parochial students, the system saves $500,00.
Other cuts and changes include the following:
