“It is our plan that the JROTC program is starting as scheduled when school starts back for all students,” said Superintendent Cynthia Zurchin.
When those jobs will be filled and whether former employees will return is unclear.
Zurchin would not comment, calling it a personnel matter.
The board also discussed increasing future costs for out-of-district students attending the JROTC program.
The board was set to approve program costs of $300 per class or $1,800 all day for Leadership Academy, with transportation paid by the student’s home district. Special education students pay $2,500 regardless of the number of classes.
However, some board members said the prices are too low for the popular program in comparison to regular student tuition costs.
School officials planned to review what other schools charge before making a final decision.
