Galax City Public Schools is working to adapt to budget challenges, as two-year federal stimulus funding ends and enrollment is expected to decline during the next school year, resulting in a loss of state money.
Because of that, nine positions will be cut, effective June 30. The jobs being cut include one teacher and eight support staff.
The 2011-2012 proposed budget is based on an anticipated enrollment of 1,250, down from 1,270. The budget totals $12.9 million, a $21,507 increase.
