School Superintendent Plans to Cut Spending, Salvage Teachers' Jobs

Westbrook Superintendent Reza Namin and school
administrators are preparing to cut another $1.4 million from the district's
$33.2 million budget. Namin will hold a workshop with top administrators in
January to develop a plan to address the estimated $2 million reduction in state
aid in 2010-2011.
Namin said he will continue to look at ways to
reduce the budget and consolidate services with other school districts. He also
said he can reduce spending without cutting teachers.
