(2007-09-28)
(WOUB) - A plan approved yesterday will cut costs to get the Federal Hocking School District out of fiscal emergency.

The Athens County district has been working with a state-appointed Financial Planning Commission to eliminate projected debt.

Yesterday, the commission adopted the school board's financial recovery plan and five year forecast.

Reportedly, the plan cuts spending
by more than 800-thousand dollars.

Some changes that will go into effect next school year are certain wage freezes, the elimination of several bus routes and the layoff of several drivers.
