RCSD proposed budget calls for more reading, special ed teachers

Local News
The Rochester City School District hopes to add more than 100 reading and special education teachers next school year.
The plan for special education teachers was one of the items in the proposed budget unveiled Tuesday night by Superintendent Barbara Deane-Williams.  
The spending plan totals $791 million.  It would add 144 teachers, in part by re-deploying administration positions directly into schools.
The budget includes a gap of $54.8 million, but the district is relying on additional state aid and “operational efficiencies” to help whittle that down to about $18 million.
The school board and city council must give final approval.
