The Clay Community School Corporation officials confirmed the announcement at last month's school board meeting of the extra-curricular staff positions that will not be funded in the upcoming school year.
"These positions could possibly return during the upcoming school year if funding is generated from outside sources such as booster clubs that want to retain the position," Clay Community School Superintendent William Schad said.
The following secondary level extra-curricular staff positions were eliminated from the school corporation's budget in 2005/06:
Northview High School
Two varsity basketball assistant coaching positions (one each from the girls' and boys' teams), one varsity football assistant coach, one weight room supervisor and one open facility supervisor will not be funded.
Clay City High School
One varsity girl's basketball assistant coaching position, one freshmen boy's basketball assistant coach, one of the varsity cross country coaches, one weight room supervisor and one open facility supervisor will not be funded.
North Clay Middle School
The sports activity director and one assistant track coach position will not be funded.
The cuts at the secondary level equal $20,107.75 in savings to the budget.
The following elementary level extra-curricular staff positions were also eliminated from the school corporation's budget in 2005/06:
The Book Fair chair people were eliminated at all seven elementary schools.
Elementary sports program supervisor positions were eliminated at Meridian Elementary (1), Forest Park Elementary (2), Jackson Township (2), Staunton Elementary (2) and Van Buren Elementary (1).
Elementary club sponsors were eliminated at Meridian (1), East Side (2) and Clay City Elementary (2), with a half position eliminated at Van Buren Elementary and a homework club sponsor was added at Jackson Township.
The cuts at the elementary level equaled $5,089.74 in savings, making the total savings to the budget $25,197.49. These cuts are part of the school board's effort to find $1 million in cuts of excessive expenses in the General Fund.
