Colon School Board meets tonight

Members of the Colon Community Schools Board of Education this evening will continue deliberating their plan to trim as much as $500,000 from the district’s $5.7 million budget.
The board, which met a month ago before a standing-room-only audience in excess of 80 people, is considering options that include the privatization of its transportation services, the elimination of up to three teachers, and an administrative reorganization that could see the loss of high school principal Deb Swartz and elementary principal Mitch Miller.
Board members project its student population to dip into the 580 range in two years. Current enrollment at the three-building district is 608 students.
The board has set a budget workshop for 6:30 tonight at Colon High School to take a final look at its options before making any personnel decisions.
