At Thursday's meeting of the SMASD Board of Directors, board members approved a resolution declaring their support for legislation and legislative reform measures that would ease financial burdens and constraints placed on school districts statewide.
The board declared its support for House Bill 855, a bill introduced by state Rep. Scott Boyd (R-Lancaster) seeking to allow districts to furlough or suspend personnel based on economic necessity. The bill would also provide for a district's right to base the decision on performance, certification and qualifications rather than solely upon an employee's seniority or experience.
