Federal Hocking School Board to meet this evening
(2007-05-15)
(WOUB) - It's not going to be a fun time when the Federal Hocking School Board mets this evening.

Some people apparently are going to lose their jobs.

If the board approves two resolutions, the contracts of nine teachers and four classified workers will be suspended.

The Reduction in Force proposal is to help balance the budget.

But it's not going to be enough and that's why the Fed Hock board will vote on another resolution to ask the state auditor to place the district in fiscal emergency.

The action is accompanied by a request for money from the Ohio Department of Education's School District Solvency Assistance Fund.

Federal Hocking was placed in a state of fiscal watch in March and told to develop a financial recovery plan to eliminate a projected one million dollar deficit but the board has not been able to do that.
