During the school board meeting Monday night Buhler USD 313 approved a reduction in staff. The reduction includes: Eliminating the French program, eliminating an assistant girls’ and assistant boys’ basketball team coach, and reducing one math/science position all at the high school. Other reductions include: Eliminating one science position at Prairie Hills Middle School, a first grade at Buhler Grade School and Union Valley Elementary. Shortening the school year to save money was not an option. Through these reductions the school district was able to find $182,000 in savings.
