BC presents \reduction plan at board of ed meeting tonight

The Bethlehem Central Board of Education will hear Superintendent Michael Tebbano's reduction plan at tonight's meeting.

The suburban school district is currently facing a loss of millions of dollars in state aid under Gov. David Paterson's proposed budget, even with the news it would receive an estimated $1 million from the federal government's stimulus package.

Both Tebbano and Board of Education President James Lytle have warned about "tough decisions" facing the school as a result of state cuts in education. Tebbano's reduction plan will outline proposals to reduce Bethlehem's expenditures and look at possible new revenue sources.

The board meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the district's main offices, 90 Adams Place, Delmar.
