Rocky Mountain Academy of Evergreen has now cut nearly $532,500 from this year’s budget and plans to tap into its reserve funds to make up for a shortfall.
Two preschool teachers will be laid off in January, and their classrooms will be combined. In the K-8 school, the work hours of one music teacher and the Spanish and art teachers have been trimmed. However, all students will still get instruction in those subjects.
In addition, some pay raises given at the start of the school year have been rescinded.
