CHESTERFIELD, NJ –

It’s budget season for Elementary Schools across the Garden State, and Chesterfield Elementary will publicly announce its 2017-2018 budget at a meeting on Wednesday, April 26th at 7pm.

WBNC News has learned that multiple members of the Chesterfield staff will lose their jobs after this year due to the $500K deficit the school is facing, but we cannot confirm at this time how many and which positions will be cut.

In an email to WBNC News, School Superintendent Scott Heino says “Our current staff will continue to be employed for the remainder of the school year”.

Heino spoke to legislators at a State Budget Hearing on March 22nd, saying “You are slowly killing our school district and making it very difficult to provide a thorough and efficient education to the children of Chesterfield.”

The meeting takes place tonight, Wednesday, April 26th at 7pm in the library of Chesterfield Elementary School. WBNC News will be there.
