CENTRAL - The Central School Board has decided to spend more time looking into whether it can afford new positions Superintendent Michael Faulk is seeking after several residents raised concerns about the costs.
The board voted unanimously Monday to add a guidance counselor and a "journey to career" teacher at Central Middle School.
The board stopped short of hiring employees to fill four other positions Faulk recommended -an assistant principal, guidance counselor, and a physical education and a band teacher, all for Central Intermediate School.
Keith Holmes, a Central resident, expressed concerned about whether Central might be adding positions too fast, with a small surplus and limited state funding.
