Morehouse board votes on plan to tackle deficit

Posted: Updated:

The Morehouse Parish School Board has voted on a plan to tackle its $3.4 million deficit for the upcoming operating year.

The final cost-reduction plan includes closing Southside Elementary School, reducing the workforce and moving to a four-day work week.

The board's decisions merged plans from Superintendent George Noflin and community members that have been in the making since October.

The News-Star reports Tuesday night's meeting lasted about three hours as the board voted on the plan in five phases.

The plan calls for reducing staff by 32.
