Haddon Heights school budget: Tax hikes; 11 jobs to be cut

“For the second year in a row, the Haddon Heights  School District faces a budget deficit. This year’s – about $850,000 – is largely due to having fewer tuition-paying students from Barrington and Lawnside, Superintendent Michael Adams said. Last year’s budget resulted in staff reductions, and the proposed budget would result in about 11 more job cuts, he said.

“The district also will ask voters for permission to raise the tax levy above the 2 percent state cap by about $208,000. That’s what officials say is needed to save activities such as freshman and junior high sports, elementary instrumental band and choir, winter cheerleading, and some academic clubs.”
