Oneonta City School District Interim Superintendent David Rowley said the district has made some large cuts to deal with the reduced state aid, including closing Center Street School.
“We are in a similar situation to other schools,” with reserves dwindling to preserve programs, he said. There have been a number of staff cuts during the past several years. If the situation doesn’t change, more programs will be affected because so many cuts have been made, he said.
“Nobody’s immune anymore,” he said. “It’s extremely serious.”
